Doodh pedha Burfi Khova

Doodh pedha is probably the simplest of the pedas, made from milk, sugar and cardamom and nuts. Doodh Peda is very closely associated with various hindu festivals such as deepvali, ganesh puja, etc. It is easy to make and is a delicacy in most parts of north india.

The name Doodh peda is derived from the word Doodh meaning milk. Doodh peda is very commonly distributed as prasad in the temples as well as at homes during festivals. It is a must during deepavali, the indian festivals of lights. It is not only popular in North India but in the south as well where it is normally known as pal kova.

Doodh peda is easy to prepare and even a novice cook can whip up one in a very short time. And it has a great taste. To prepare it you will require 2 kg khoya(very easily available in any Indian sweetmeat shop), milk (250 gms), grounded sugar(250 gms), rose water, 2 tbsp each of slivered almonds and pistachios, 1 tsp cardamom powder.

Add sugar to the khoya and knead it into a smooth lump. Heat the khoya over medium fire and a few tbsps of milk at a time and mix well. Repeat it over and over till all the milk is utilized and a smooth paste is derived. Now add the cardamom powder and rose water and mix well. Let the mixture cool down a little. Now make small balls of the mixture and flatten them a bit to give them the shape of pedas. Sprinkle some slivered pistachios and almonds over the pedas. Let them cool till they are solid and serve.
