Microwave Milk Peda / Doodh Peda / Milk Fudge

I made this quick and easy sweet for Diwali. I have seen this peda recipe all over the internet  and it was the first time I made this sweet and I was amazed by its easiness. It can be made in a matter of minutes if you have all the ingredients ready. No sieving, chopping, frying, baking needed! Just mix the ingredients and all you need is microwave for 3 minutes! Yes, you heard it right. Just 3 minutes! And it uses just 3 ingredients!

You cant make a more easier and delicious sweet! Great to make along with kids!

Here is a pictorial video!

Instant Dry Milk Powder - 2 cups
Sweetened Condensed Milk or Milkmaid - one 14 oz can
Butter - 1/2 stick or 4 tablespoons


  1. Take a microwave safe bowl and melt the butter by microwaving a few seconds. Do not bring it to a boil.
  2. To the melted butter, add the dry milk powder, sweetened condensed milk and mix thoroughly. Everything should be mixed completely.
  3. Microwave for a total of 3 minutes mixing the ingredients thoroughly after each minute.
  4. Dont forget to mix the sweet after each minute!
  5. After 3 minutes, take the bowl out of the microwave and allow it to cool enough to handle with your hands. This shoud approximately take around 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Grease a big plate with oil or butter.
  7. Also, grease your palms with oil or butter and take a small amount of the mixture and make into a small sized ball. Flatten slightly and arrange them on the greased plate.
  8. Decorate as needed. I used some crushed pistachios on top.

Other topping ideas: Cashews, raisins, almonds, chironji seeds, sunflower seeds, coloured sugar etc.
