  • 2 Cups Milk Powder/Milk Mawa
  • 1/2 Cup Evaporated Milk or Full Fat Milk
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder
  • Cardamom Seeds for Garnish
  • 1/4 Cup Desi Ghee

For Sugar Syrup

  • 1/4 Cup Castor Sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp Water


  • To make Pede, add milk ghee and evaporated milk and mix well. Switch on the flame on low, once ghee melts,boil milk and ghee mixture for 1-2 minutes. If you are not using full fat milk not evaporated milk, boil it for 4-5 minutes, then add add milk powder and cardamom powder to the milk.
    This mixture is just like the mawa that we use for making pedas and other sweets.
  • Start cooking the mixture, till it starts turning light brown.
  • Meanwhile in a pan add sugar and 2-3 tbsp of water. Make sugar syrup of 1 thread consistency.
  • Keep on stirring so that mawa doesn't burn.
  • Add sugar solution of one thread consistency and  mix it well. When you are comfortable to touch the khoya mixture, make small tennis ball or lemon sized pedas. Flatten a bit by hand.
  • Roll in castor sugar and garnish with elaichi or cardamom seeds.
