Doodh Peda Recipe / Milk Peda Recipe / How to Make Doodh Peda with Milk

I have made instant peda before, but never tried a real peda which is made using milk. I wanted to make that for this diwali because there is nothing compared to this version. It is so rich and so yummy, you can never stop with one. But the only thing is the amount of time it takes to make. But at the end it is so worth it...

But for those busy people, i will share a instant kesar peda and chocolate peda recipe soon..Keep checking it.

So hope you will try this out and let me know how it turned out for you.

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 50 mins to 1 hour
Makes : 12 to 15 pedas


Full Fat Cow's Milk - 1 liter
Sugar - 1 cup
Lemon Juice - 1 tsp
Ghee - a little to grease hands
Pistachios - 2 tblspn chopped very finely


Take milk in a heavy bottom pan and heat it. Once it boil, keep stiring and cook till the milk has reduced in half.

Once it is reduced in half, add in lemon juice and keep stiring.

It will curdle a little. keep cooking on high flame. The milk will get lot more thick now.

Add in sugar and mix well. Cook this for few more mins till it gets really thick
