Quick Microwave Doodh Peda (Milk Fudge)

Doodh Peda is one of  the most popular North Indian desserts. I love all kind of milk sweets like rasagolla, Rasamalai, Gulab jamun, Basundhi and doodh peda.

The main ingredients for Doodh peda are khoa, sugar and traditional flavorings, including cardamom seeds, pistachio nuts and saffron. The color varies from a creamy white to a caramel colour. The word pera is also generically used to mean a blob of any doughy substance, such as flour or (in the case of the sweet) khoa. Pedas are sometimes used as prasad in religious services.

Doodh peda is made out of paal kova. Paal kova recipe is coming soon in Spicytasty.

I always thought it takes lot of time to make pedas. But I recently learnt this quick microwave cooking peda from my sister. Believe me this is one of the easiest methods and it takes less than 30 minutes.  I hope you like this simple peda recipe. Enjoy making pedas for Diwali festival.  Advance Diwali wishes to you all.
