Instant Doodh Peda With Milk Powder, Condensed Milk

doodh peda

Basically I love milk sweets especially milk halwa and doodh peda are my favorites. I love Nandini Doodh peda very much and tried to recreate it at home several times but I couldn’t get it perfect. Then I came across this Instant doodh peda with milk powder and condensed milk in a YouTube channel.

Usually Doodh peda is prepared by boiling and reducing the milk till thick. It takes more time to prepare. But this is a short cut version which gives the end result equal to the shop ones. To shape this peda just like Nandini ones, I bought peda maker from Amazon and tried it. It came out perfect in shape. I loved it and became very happy to see my doodh peda just like store bought ones.

Friends, if you are looking for easy Diwali sweets to prepare under 20 minutes, this is one recipe. Even though it takes less time to cook, you need to wait atleast for one day to get the perfect sweet stall taste because doodh peda takes more time to set. It stays good for a week with refrigeration and two days without refrigeration.

Do try this easy, yummy instant doodh peda recipe with milk powder and condensed milk. You will love it like me. Lets move on to the recipe with step by step pictures and a video.
