About Good Day Peda:

I still remember when I was a kid the first thing that I did as soon as my father had arrived from India every time, was to search for the milk peda boxes in his luggage.

Milk Peda is a sweet dish popular across the Indian subcontinent. It is a semi- soft sweet made out of khoya or mava. It is served mainly during the Hindu and Muslim festivals and various poojas in India. As in the books of history of food, it originated from Mathura, Uttar Pradesh. The traditional peda is made from dry milk solids prepared by heating the milk known as khoa or mava, sugar, cardamom and saffron. But in the present days, every part of India have their own customised version of the sweet like Dharwad Peda in Karnataka and Kandi Peda in Maharashtra.

Here I am presenting a simple peda recipe made with Condensed Milk and Good Day Cookies, which is time saving and three times easier than the traditional peda.

 

Suggestions:

  1. Instead of Good Day biscuits, you can use Marie Biscuits or Sunfeast Magic Cookies.
  2. You can give some structural designs on the peda before placing the gem to have a better look.
  3. You can also use pistachio or cashew nuts instead of gems chocolates.

  1. Grind the Good Day cookies to a fine powder.
  2. Add butter, condensed milk and Cardamom Powder into a hot pan on medium low flame and slowly stir until the mixture is bubbly, thick and starts leaving the pan.
  3. Once the mixture turns thick turn off the flame, slowly add the powdered cookies to the mixture and mix it well with a spatula.
  4. Let the mixture cool a little.
  5. Grease your palm with a little butter and take a lemon sized portion of the mixture and pat it into a small peda with a diameter of 3cm.
  6. Place the gems chocolates on the top of the peda and press it a little, so that it will stick to the peda.
