No! Its not been my birthday party which has made me open up. But there has been a lot of birthdays lately and they do make me a bit emotional. No complaints though. It’s a lot of cake that’s going inside me right now. Who knows, I might whine next week about breaking the weighing scale again!
Coming to the recipe for today- Instant malai peda or doodh peda (doodh=milk) as it is called is a super easy sweet that you can make (almost) instantly if you are craving for some quick sugar rush or in case of unannounced guests.
You don’t even have to use your gas for that and its all done in Microwave so that saves you a lot of hassle and cleaning work. It is of course not as amazing as Mathura ke pede but they are made using khoya and takes at least a hundred times more effort and time. So this is kind of a shortcut to that.
To be honest, there is not much of a recipe here. But just jotting up the ingredients and whipping them for a few minutes. And you can add any flavours of your choice like vanilla, cardamom, mango, rose essence etc. to the dough (or batter!) for a quick spin.
There is just one downside. Its very very addictive! Its almost impossible to just stop at one. I would ask you to try, but then I don’t want to take the blame of you gulping down extra calories with these.
So just prepare them in small sizes (like I do) so you could cheat yourselves a bit and pop in small portions every time you want to have some.
