A delightful, slightly chewy, milk fudge made with just 4 ingredients. Doodh Peda is perfect for any occasion.
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 24


  • 1 tin 397g/14Oz Condensed Milk
  • 2 teaspoon Yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon Ghee plus a little more for greasing.
  • 1 Cardamom pod husked, seeded and seeds powdered; about ⅛ teaspoon


  • Grease a microwave bowl lightly with ghee.
  • Pour the condensed milk into the bowl along with yogurt and ghee. Mix well using a small whisk.
  • Microwave (on HIGH or full power) for 30 seconds and remove from the microwave. Mix again.
  • Repeat step number 3 for another 12-13 times - a total of 6-7 minutes or till the milk forms a cohesive mass and does not flow.
  • After adding the cardamom powder, whisk once again to break the granules, transfer the contents to a greased parchment paper and let it cool enough to handle (about 6-8 minutes).
  • Divide the mixture into 24 equal sized parts and roll into small balls. Grease your hands if the mixture is sticky. Flatten each ball into a small disc between your palms.
  • Serve or Store.


1. Each microwave is different. So, keep an eye on the mixture at all times.[br]2. Increment the cooking only by 30 seconds to avoid boiling and spilling. If you suspect that the mixture will boil and spill, give it a few seconds' rest before you restart the microwave. Also, clean the spills immediately with a damp cloth.[br]3. My way of dividing into 24 pieces, is as follows:[br] Divide the mix into 4 portions and then roll each portion into a small rod. Cut each rod into 6 equal sized pieces and roll them into a ball. Yield- 24 pieces.[br]4. This Doodh Peda is unlike the store bought ones, since it is slightly chewy than the store bought ones. [br]5. Refrigerating the pedas hardens them.[br]4. These doodh pedas are soft and chewy at room temperature. You can also refrigerate them to make them a little hard. [br]6. I have stored them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week.[br]7. The "Cook Time" includes the cooling time as well as the actual cooking time.
