  • 4 cupa paneer home made
  • 1/3 cup milk powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter or ghee
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder ilachi

For Garnishing

  • 1 tbsp sliced pistachios


  • Check the recipe for paneer and make the paneer with whole milk. For this recipe use 4 cups of milk.
  • Heat the frying pan on medium. Add butter and let it melt. Next add milk, milk powder, and paneer. Mix it well.
  • Cook mixture on medium heat stirring continuously until mixture starts leaving the sides of the frying pan and becomes like dough. This should take about 12 minutes. Now this is known as khoya.
  • Transfer the khoya into a bowl and let it cool off until khoya becomes just lukewarm.
  • Mix the sugar and cardamom powder into the khoya and knead it for about a minute until every thing blends together and become soft dough. Note: if you mix the sugar while khoya is hot that will make pedas soft.
  • Divide the mix into about 20 equal parts and roll them into round balls. Lightly press it down so it looks like small patty. Put few pieces of sliced pistachios on every peda.
  • Pedas should be served at room temperature.


Pedas can be kept for few days at room temperature and about a month refrigerated.

Indian Peda Sweet Recipes – Manjula’s Kitchen 

Peda sweet, an exquisite Indian dessert, holds a special place in the hearts of many dessert enthusiasts. The good news is, crafting this delightful treat at home is easier than you might think, especially if you’ve got some whole milk in your kitchen. Now, let’s go step-by-step process on how to make these mouthwatering peda mithai.

Prepare the Paneer: 

Start by making paneer by adding lemon juice to half a cup of hot water. Boil milk on medium heat, stirring to prevent burning. When it boils, gradually add lemon juice, stirring gently. Turn off the heat when curds separate from whey. Drain using a cheesecloth-lined strainer, rinse with cold water, and squeeze out excess water. Press wrapped paneer under a heavy pan for 1 hour to remove excess water.

Get Cooking

Begin by heating a frying pan on medium heat. Once the pan is warm, add a small amount of butter and let it melt until it becomes a golden liquid. Following this, introduce the whole milk into the pan. Sprinkle in a moderate amount of milk powder and incorporate the paneer into the mixture. Thoroughly mix these ingredients together in the pan, ensuring an even distribution. This step helps in the creation of a cohesive and flavorful mixture that will later contribute to the overall texture and taste of the dish.

Stir, Stir, Stir

Cook the mixture over medium heat, and the key is to keep stirring consistently. Don’t take a break! Keep at it until you notice the mixture changing – it will start to pull away from the sides of the pan, transforming into a dough-like texture. This process usually takes about 12 minutes. When that happens, you’ve successfully created khoya, the essential foundation for making our delicious peda indian sweet.

Cool Off

Transfer the khoya mixture that you’ve made into a bowl. Let it cool down until it reaches a lukewarm temperature. It’s important not to use it while it’s still hot for the next step in the recipe. Allowing it to cool ensures that the khoya’s texture and consistency are just right for the following stages of the cooking process. This cooling step is crucial to achieve the desired results in your final dish.

Sweet Blending

Now comes the sweet part! Once the khoya is lukewarm, add in the sugar and cardamom powder. Give it a good mix and start kneading for about a minute until everything blends into a soft dough. A little tip: if you mix the sugar while the khoya is still hot, your Peda indian sweet could turn out a bit too soft. So, let the khoya cool a bit before adding the sweetness!

Shape It Up

After preparing the khoya mix, divide it into roughly 20 equal portions. Take each portion and shape it into a round ball. Once you have your little balls, gently press them down to create a small, flat patty shape. If you want to enhance the appearance, consider placing a few slices of pistachios on top of each pera sweet. This simple step adds a touch of elegance to your homemade peda sweet, making them not only delicious but also visually appealing.

Serve at Room Temperature

Your pera sweet are almost ready to be savored! To enhance their delicious taste, allow them to sit at room temperature. This simple step allows the flavors to fully develop, resulting in a more rich and satisfying indulgence. When you’re ready to treat yourself, serve up these delightful indian sweet pedas. You’ll likely find that they disappear swiftly, a testament to their irresistible appeal.

Storage Notes:

Amongst all the indian sweet recipes the Indian sweet peda is one of the most versatile sweets that can last for a few days at room temperature. If you want to savor the sweetness for a more extended period, refrigerate them for about a month.

In summary, making pera sweets at home is a rewarding and surprisingly simple process. From preparing the paneer to shaping the pera indian sweet, every step contributes to the rich flavor and texture of this delightful treat. So, gather your ingredients, follow these easy steps, and indulge in the joy of homemade peda mithai. Enjoy the sweetness!

  1. Hello Manjula. I love your recipes and cook them quite often. They are simple and easy to follow. I also think you are a very nice person. I will continue to follow your recipes as I love vegetarian food. Best wishes.

    1. 5 stars
      Hi mam,
      I love your Recipes,
      I made PEDA by watching at your recipes and it’s came out really good.
      thank you for that. I love cooking, I have done cooking show with colors uk tv channel

  2. Hello,
    This recipe was double the awesome! I think this new way to make khoya is fabulous!!! Making khoya through milk is very time consuming. I love this recipe. Thank you so much for posting this!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Hello Manjula ma’am ,
    I’ve tried pedas recipe 2days back, it turned out wonderful. You have shown a very easy recipe, instead of reducing milk by stirring continuously for an hour. My daughter asked to make it again , I made it today too. Thank you for the easy way.

  4. What is the sense first to make cheese, then add milk and milk powder to make Khoya ?
    Khoya can be made straight from Milk.
    Just for sake of writing recipe, it is really useless to add unnecessary steps for preparation.

  5. hello manjulaji,your recipe for peda indeed looks easy and yummy…but i was wondering besides the ingrediants that you have used in this recipe can i also add some khoa to it along with the other ingrediants to make it even morerich in taste…..and at what point of the process can i add the khoa…..please let me know thank you….parizad (vancouver)

  6. manjula mam i have tried to make pav bhaji ,it was too delicious
    said by my family. actually i have watched your recepy and tried in same way .thak you .
    but do you have any instant sweet dish recepy?

  7. I found the peda recipe wonderful. May I ask you a question? What is paneer? According to my knowledge, I think it’s cheese but what type of cheese? Can I make Peda without this cheese.
    I heard my mother saying that you need mavo, I don’t know what is this.
    Can any body give me idea to make peda without paneer?
    I shall appreciate any of yours idea.Thank you in advance and waiting for your favorable reply.My kind regard from Switzerland.

  8. I am thrilled to have found your site Manjula, I followed the link from youtube. I love Indian sweets and now I can have them anytime. This recipe was easy to make and the video was very helpful. I was surprised how simple it was to make the paneer. My family has gluten allergies and your gluten free section is fabulous I will defiantly try some of these recipies . I am looking forward to your upcoming bessan roti, I really mis naan though.

  9. Hi,

    Tried these peda today..though they turned put great but they weren’t as smooth as yours..they had little grainy texture…
    I used 2%milk…can that be a reason?or else the dough wasn’t ready?

  10. I have made these pedas, they were very good… But something was different abut mine. They contained little brown pieces from the mix at the end (paneer, milk, milk powder). But in the end, they were DELICIOUS. (BTW, my mixture mad 14 pedas.)

  11. Hi aunty

    Thank you for all your recipes. This recipe did not work as planned. The resulting mixture started oozing oil after sometime and was too powdery for me to make pedas. Can you help me with this? Any idea where I went wrong.

  12. Hello Aunti,
    Can I use this mawa for gulabjamun also. I bought Nanak mawa from market and gulabjamun cam every nice and balls inside. I want to make same kind of mawa at home.
    Please suggest.

  13. This turned out well! Thank you Manjula … I am learning SO MUCH from you, and I really appreciate your efforts! I think I should have let the khoya cool just a teeny bit more before adding the sugar, but I was still able to form the pedas. Since I made these for Krishna’s appearance day, I decided to add a little yellow food color to brighten them up a bit — they are quite lovely I think. I haven’t tasted them yet, not until after they are offered, but they smell delicious. I think once they sit in the fridge for a bit they will attain the right consistency.

  14. hi,
    i’ve tried to make the paneer just now. i use high calcium milk and lime juice instead of lemon juice but the curd does not separate from the milk. is this because of the milk or lime juice?can anybody please tell me what do i do wrong?

      1. Hi manjula. I tried your penda recipe and it did not come out like yours. While I cooked it it never formed a dough it remained with lumps in it . I think maybe my paneer was hard . Pliz help

      1. Nisha, as Swa says their is a difference between the measurements in Video and written recipe. You suggested the written one. So was just wondering did you tried it on your own? As I’m about to cook it.

          1. Thank you so much, Aunty! 🙂 Will try your recipe soon and let you know how it turns out.

  15. Dear aunty,

    I tried this recipe today and could make a dough. But when I added sugar into the hot dough, it became very soft and could not roll into balls. I kept the loose mixture in the refrigerator. How can I make use of the above mixture? Could you please tell me what went wrong in my recipe?

    1. You added the sugar while dough was really hot and therefore it became very soft.. so wait until it cools for alittle bit like warm to the touch then add the sugar.

  16. Hi Manjuben,
    Thanks for the lovely tips on making Penda.
    I tried & it turned out good.
    But sugar was quite crystalized. Is it okay to use powder sugar?
    Thanks Ila

  17. Dear Manjula Aunty,

    Thank u so much for this wonderful receipe. I followed your steps exactly & the pedas came out excellent. My husband loved it a lot. I also tried your Bengali Rasgulla & it came out perfect. Always my rasgullas use to break but this time none of them were broken. I do send my receipes to another website. Can i post this receipe there so that other viewers can also be benefitted only if you permit? Kindly reply. Thank you

  18. Hi Manjula Aunty,

    I tried making pedas everything was fine the dough came out well and when i mixed sugar to it it became too soft from which i was not able to make balls…………….in that case what should i do to make the balls please please reply me back aunty……………..

    i really want to know what can i do for that now…………..
    Eagerly waiting for ur response

    Thank You

  19. Dear Majula Aunty,

    I tried making pedas, everything went well until after i mixed milk and milk powder with paneer in ghee. I put 3 tablespoons of ghee, even after 15 mins my consistency was not like what i saw in your video. i could see a lot of ghee and spooned some out. I was even unable to make peda shapes and so i had to flatten it out in a plate and cut it up like barfi. i used the exact measurements you mentioned but somehow my end product did not look the same as in your video. what do you think went wrong?

  20. Dear Aunt,
    I really enjoyed looking at you making the peda, I would really like to make the homemade paneer, but I am not getting it right. Thank you.

  21. Hello Manjula Aunty, I try many of ur recipes and they come out great. But the pedas did not come out very good. I used the same proportion given by you, but even with the khova, it was bringing out lot of butter(ghee) and it did not come out dry like yours. What do you think is my mistake……pls reply. But the taste was awesome…

  22. dear manjula anuty

    i tried this recipe twice n both time it did not turn out good… first time i could not turn into ball.. it was all falling apart… then i tried again this time it was sticky… i did put the sugar when it was cool of completely… i m not sure what mistake i m doing if u can help that would b great

    thank you anuty

    1. Dee,
      If the mix of paneer, milk and milk powder became too dry you will not be able to make peda it will little crumbly, remember as the khoya will cool it will be little dry it is making more on khoya if it becomes dry you can sprinkle few drops of warm milk.

  23. Dear Aunty,

    I am planning to make these pedas for navrathri.But I dont hv the milk powder with me.Can u suggest any substitute for the milk powder

    Thank you Aunty

  24. Dear Manjula Aunty,

    You know something i learnt cooking from yours videos going to get marry soon thanks for teaching me everything. I would like to ask something that is can i use unsalted mawa instant of paneer to amke peda.

    Thanks & Regards
    Soniya Vora

  25. Hi Manjula Aunty,

    I like all your recipes and try most of them!! Thanks so much!
    I have one question about this recipe: There is difference between measurements that you took in video and the details in written in website. I am going to try this recipe. Can you please confirm which one is correct one?

    Thanks so much!


  26. Hi Aunty,

    I tried making pedas.. everythng went well.. i used the measurements tht are written.. but now pedas became lil soft… wat can i do?? shld i put it in the fridge for some time n then make pedas of it??

  27. Hello aunty,
    I ‘ve tried making almost all your dessert recipes and was successful making them except for boondi and pedas. In pedas after trasferring the khoya into a plate and kneading it into a dough after it has cooled doen with sugar the dough turns out so soft that i fail to make those small balls. Aunty , why is there a difference in measurement of ingredients between your video and the website ? Is it 1/3 or 3/4 cup , pls clarify…


  28. Dear Manjula Aunty,
    Your Recipes are so good….
    I like it so much…………..
    I wish to do peda for my baby’s First Birthday….
    I wish to know can we use instant non-fat milk powder for this recipe…..

  29. Hi Manjula Aunty,
    I have seen your PEDA recipe video. You have mentioned use of paneer in it. Can i use readymade cottage cheese crumbles available in stores instead of paneer?

  30. hi manjula aunty!!

    your recipes are so simple yet so good, i just love them, i tried egg less pineapple cake, it turned out beautiful. also i tried panipuri and kaju burfi, everything was gud. thanks a lot. my hubby is a big foodie, he loves watever i make and also he said to say thanks to you from his side also.

    Thanks again.









  33. hello manjula aunty
    i tried making peda yesterday and it turned out so yummy…i am really happy with the outcome..thanks for this and so many easy and tasty recipies…keep up this good work..!

  34. i tried making peda with these proportions, but the dough became dry and granular. i had used vanaspati instead of ghee. it looked like kalakand in the end. please advise where i am going wrong.

  35. Hello Manjula,
    in your video, u said that milk powder, milk is 1/3 rd cup. Howver ur recipie ingredients text says that milk powdwer n milk is 3/4 cup. kindly clarify the exact measurement.

  36. Hi aunty
    I use the same measurement even it came out like churma the only thing I use is ghee than butter . I want to try again by butter but pls let me know where I m wrong? Do I have to smooth paneer before making khoya?

  37. Hi aunty
    I tried this recipe today. I used 3 tbs of Ghee and when I made khoya it was crumble I mean not like dough u have in ur video. I don’t know what’s wrong I can not make it together pls let me know. I used 1/3 cup non fat powder and 1/3 cup milk in khoya.

    1. You should try the recipe with the same measurements of ingredients. It sounds by your description that you did it a different way. You need to use paneer, milk powder, and milk as in the instructions. That should not turn out dry. Do again and see if it’s better.

      1. Thanks for your reply, I used the same recipe as in video only i used ghee insted of butter that Manjula anty reply to somebody that we can use that.

  38. hello Manjula ji,

    pls do tell us the recipe of making sweet Khajas that are offered to the Lord jagannath. i was searching for it, but was disappointed not to find!!

    1. Hi Ami,
      You can do so.I myself prepared with readymade mawa.You ll need to add a little milk to khoya to hydrate it and make a dough.
      Pedas turn out excellent.

  39. Hi Aunty.

    Thanks for this recipe I am planning to make it today.can u tell me which kind of milk I have to use ? 2% or fullfat? And what kind of milk powder ?

  40. Namaste Manjula Aunty,
    I am very glad that I came across through your website. I tried making the besan ke laddoo….it came out fabulously delicious. The only problem was it was too less in quantity ;)..
    Aunty I want to try out this Peda recipe…the problem is that Milk powder is not available in this place.They sell Milk creamer instead of milk powder.The ingredients in it are semi-skimmed milk and sugar. Can i use the same quantity of that or should here be variations in its measurement?
    Please do tell me cause I am very eager to make this recipe for my mom as a surprise on her birthday.
    Thank you in advance.

  41. Manjula, I have been a fan of your website since I discovered it a couple of years ago. Thank you so much!!! My question is do you think it is possible to make a vegan version of PEDA?

  42. hi manjula aunty,
    yestarday i tried peda and got it very well.
    my husband liked very much.The mesurments you have given are perfect.
    Thank you very much.

  43. Hello Manjula aunty,
    I tried the peda recipe and it came it quite good.
    I have few questions though. Does the recipe call for ( as in video ) 1/3 cup milk powder, 1/3 cup paneer and 1/3 cup milk or 3/4 cup each as given in the text recipe.
    the pedas i made were a little sticky, not smooth like the ones in the video.
    And also can we use ghee instead of butter?

    thanks in advance

      1. Hello Manjula Anutie,

        your recipe for Peda is really good however like other readers I need to clarify the ingredients again. In the video, you show – 4 cups of milk, but in documented recipe says milk should be 3/4 cup. Which one is correct? Also, in the video, you use 1/3 cup of milk powder and 1/3 cup paneer, but in the documented recipe says that milk powder and paneer should both be 3/4 cups. Again, which one is correct? Lastly, in the video you had an additional 1/3 cup milk in a small bowl. What was that for? I did not notice that you used it for anything.
        Many thanks!

  44. Hello Manjula Ji,

    All your recipes are excellent. Thanks a lot for uploading these videos.
    Can we use the paneer which is available at the Indian market or does it has to be prepared at home? Please let me know about that.

    1. using the paneer from the store will make awful pedda’s as it is meant for curries like palak paneer mutter paneer etc and try using vinegar when u curdle the milk instead of lemon juice mix a table spoon of plain vinegar with 2 tablespoons of water and add slowly when milk is boiling and let it boil for 30 seconds or until it curdles as sen in Manjula’s video

  45. Hi,

    i used the exact measuresments and procedures,but my pedas we extremely soft, i was tired of putting in more powdered milk. please check your measurements before releasing on the net.

    1. Dont blame Majula as the measurments are perfect your peda’s were soft as you took off the pot from the stove too soon let it sit and keep mixing making sure they dont stick at the bottom (use non stick pot) until it is firm as S E E N in Mnajula’s video I cooked and they were perfect I added a little saffron and all at home said WOW and I said WOW to Manjula

      1. I agree…my pedas didnt turn out nice….and there is some mistake in the measurement!
        if u look at the video, manjula aunty is saying different amount of milk powder and everything but if u look at the ingredients in the written recipe, they are different than the ingredients in video
        so which 1 am i suppose to use…..should i go with the measurement in the video or with the measurement in the written recipe?

    2. Mine turned out fine too. Only thing different is that I had to cook the Khoya longer than the 13 minutes in the video but we’re at altitude here (5000 feet or so) … took about 17 minutes of cooking time to get it just right.

    1. Aunty pls let me know whats the measurement of the cup that you use for cooking.I want to try making some sweets for diwali but can’t start because i dont know the measurement of the cup.

  46. hi aunty
    i tried this receipe and it was really too good.i prepared some pedas in sugar free so my father in law also enjoy it and it taste with sugar free is also too good.everybody like it.but aunty it get spoil after 2 days why it so happen?should i have to put it in refrigerater?

        1. You must allow them to cool down fully before putting them in a container. If they are still warm when you seal the container then that will allow bacteria to start growing.

          I always keep milk based sweets in the fridge as an added precaution.

  47. Can milk powder be substituted with milk?. If so then how much milk has to be added. If not what milk powder has to be used?. My father-in-law likes this sweet. I would like to do it for him. Please let me know.

  48. I tried the peda
    after i put the sugar the mixture became a little sticky
    i shaped them in peda shape and put them in the fridge
    it became hard
    what is the reason for the mixture to become sticky after i put the sugar

  49. Hello Manjula Aunty,

    Simply you are the best! Your receipes are simple and great. I made peda today and came out like bought from store. I love to follow your receipes. Keep up good work, I love to learn new receipes from you.

    Thanks much.

  50. hi manjulajee,

    with kind regards

  51. hello manjula aunt y,ur recepies r so easy and nice to learn thanks aunty for ur wonderfull recepies , aunty in this peda could u tell me the name f the milk powder thanks aunty

  52. Thank you so much for ur reply on Gulabjamun recipie
    I’m sure going to try it….but along with it, I also wanted to make Kesar Peda.
    If i follow the same recipie as yours, when do I add saffron??
    and how much? do i mix it with milk?

    Thank you very very much for recipies…I’m 17 and before this I never cooked…My mom always used to force me into cooking but I always thought it was boring
    but when I came across your website, I saw the recipie and just to pass time, tried making rasgulla….the came out really nice and then my confidence increased!
    In last 2 or 3 only weeks I’ve tried so many recipies of yours and all turned out really really very well…not a single recipe that turned out bad
    My parents couldn’t believe that I actually made it! but now when i see my mom, proudly telling her friends and relatives about how nice i cook, i really feel special
    and the whole credit goes to you

    Thank you so so sooo much for the website and videos.

    1. Hi Dhrashti,
      Thank you for such a nice compliment, you made my day. I am also very proud of you. Take about 10 strands of saffron and soak the in 1 tablespoon of warm milk for few minutes and add to peda the same time you will be adding the sugar.

  53. Hello Aunty,

    I want to know if adding sugar when u are making the dough is ok ? or do we have to add it later ?
    iam thinking that adding later might leave granules of sugar in the dough and it might not taste pleasant …

  54. Hello Aunty, I am good at cooking and making various dishes, still i like to watch your show and all the receipies 🙂 … I am telling you are doing really a great job who are beginners in cooking and also for NRI vegitarians … Thanks for being helpdul to all…
    I have made peda from khoya but never from milk-paneer… In this receipe you have used milk powder… in market two types of milk powder available i.e. mava-milk powder and one simple milk powder(which is used to make tea as well)… So it would be appreciate if you can tell which milk powder you have used… I have both present in my kitchen 🙂


  55. Hello Aunty,
    I have tried lots of your recipes. Your instructions and videos are so good that the dishes turn out excellent on the first attempt itself. I couldn’t make any desserts before and now I know so many!!! 🙂 The Pedas turned out great but I used much less sugar than you mentioned. I was wondering if there is some error in the quantity you mention? Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipes with us. While you make it so easy for us, I can only imagine how much you must have experimented to come up with these perfect recipes. Thank you for all your hard work!

  56. Hi Aunty

    I tried this recipe again but this time I waited until the khoya cooled off to room temperature and then I added ground white sugar and I had no problem. However the khoya would not form like a dough. So I put a little bit of oil on my hands and kneaded the mixture, it formed into a dough without a problem.

    Thanks for this wonderful recipe.


  57. Hi Aunty

    I try this your Peda today the khoya was fine until I added the sugar. I waited until the khoya was lukewarm but it still went soft. Can u tell me what temperature it is with a thermometer. For me lukewarm may be too warm may hands have adapted hot temperatures.

    Thank you

  58. hii aunty i tried ur peda recipe today..i use a ready made khoya in it n it still came out very tasty..thank you very much all ur dishes u really excellent iam gona try each of them very soon.. i also told couple of my fr’d bout ur site n they also tried couple of recipes n they were very impressed too..thank you for all ut hard work..

  59. Hi Jaya,

    Sorry to trouble you but I haven’t received a reply to question about the milk. I will repeat the question how much milk do you use? 3/4 or 4 cups? because in the video it is different to what you have written.

    I eagerly await your reply.


    1. Aunty will have to help on this because the video amounts are confusing to me too. I think the 3/4 cups milk in the written recipe is referred to as 1/3 cup milk in the video. Sorry I can’t help you this time.

      1. Hi Jaya

        Thanks for your reply I might try it 3/4 cup of milk first. Jaya I have left a question under the Naan Hyperlink as well please see my questions and reply as soon as you can.


  60. Hi Jaya

    thanks for your speed reply, however you only answered one question my first question was: In the video you say you use 4 cups of milk and in the written recipe you have written 3/4 cups, so which measurement is correct I am a little confused? please note I am not talking the paneer in this question just the milk!

    Manjula Aunty I made the ragullas again yesterday and once again just brilliant! They were so delectable and so perfect my dad could not stop eating them, this is may father description thank you once again.

    I would like to see you make malai kulfi because it’s sure to be a hit!

    Thank you

      1. Hi Jaya,

        Thanks for replying, I have my daughter 3rd birthday in a week, so if you could tell me know as soon as possible that would be great. I have posted a question about Aunty’s Naan recipe as well (under the naan link ) please reply to that as well.

        Thank you,

  61. Hello Aunty,
    I have tried most of your dishes and all of them turned really great. I learnt so many dishes which i didn’t know to cook. Now on every birhtdays and parties i make delicious dishes from your website.
    Thanks a lot.

  62. Four cups of milk will turn into 3/4 cup of paneer!

    Don’t use ricotta cheese, use the paneer you make from the 4 cups of milk. Under another heading, she has the method for making paneer.

  63. Hi Aunty

    i have two questions:
    1. In the video you say you use 4 cups of milk and in the written recipe you have written 3/4 cups, so which measurement is correct I am a little confused?
    2. do you use homemade paneer or ricotta cheese?

    I eagerly await your reply Aunty.
    Thank you,

  64. Hi Aunty

    I have two question:
    1. how much fresh milk do you use because in the video you state 4 cups and in the written recipe you say 3/4 cups?
    2. Do you use homemade paneer or ricotta from the store?

    please reply as soon as you can. I love your rasgulla recipe. I am making this recipe for my dad tomorrow morning.

    Thank you,

  65. Hi aunty,

  66. Hi Aunty,
    I enjoy the dessert recipes very much…
    i tried to make peda but after i added the sugar it became very liquid type…what can i do at this moment?i added the sugar after the khoya had cooled ….but then it became very liquid type so…any solution to this…?

  67. hello ,I try u’r receipes its yummy .Just i want to know the receipe for Soanpapdi also so that i can try that for the next festival.tanx

  68. hello manjulaji
    i tried yr recipe of pedas’s and it is good. i want to ask one thing that in your ingredients it is written 3/4 cup and when u tell u say 1/3 cup. so what measurement we should take 3/4 cup or 1/3 cup?

  69. hello manjula aunty
    i liked yr receipe. it would be nice if u add some more new recipes like for ground nut chikki and kaju katli, eggless
    cake because we dont eat eggs. in south india, i have eaten something called paal cake, but it is made of milk, sugar, ghee and
    2 spoons of sooji. do you know that recipe. it looks similar to kajukatli

  70. hi auntie I would really like to thank you. I really like to cook, but I have tried different cooking book but i was not able to achieve same results. your recipes are very precise and easy to follow. I really appreciate your work.

  71. Hi ,

    Firstly thanks for such wonderful recipes.
    I never used to cook at home but now after seeing your videos i have started trying different things and results are making me try out new things…
    My mom also wants to thank u for teaching me good stuffs.

    I tried out Peda just now with ready made paneer, It came out well.
    I will try doing next time with home made paneer(Ofcourse after learning from your website).


  72. Hi Manjula Aunty,
    I have got khoya powder from my local grocery store. So can i use the khoya powder instead of making the khoya. So I could cut the steps in between. Or should I get milk powder and make khoya out of it. It would be great if you could reply as I really like pedas…
    Thank you so much

  73. Aloha, Auntie Majula: Regarding milk powder: I can find only non-fat milk powder (Carnation brand) in my local grocery store. Do I add a Tablespoon more of the unsalted butter if I use non-fat milk powder? Or where can I source online for whole milk powder? Do you use whole fat milk powder or can I use non-fat milk powder. Do you use whole milk for the recipe? I don’t mind using full-fat milk! Mahalo nui loa.

  74. I tried this recipe as they are my fav but it didnt turned out to be so good i was just not able to make balls in the end it just dont stick dunno why?wht i did wrong?

  75. Hello Manjula Aunty,

    Today tried the recipe of Peda. It came out excellent. What any easy and simple recipe and yet so delicious. Thank you so much for giving as so many easy to make and fabulous recipes.

    Am sure, hubby is going to be very happy after eating Pedas.
    Thanks again,

  76. Dear Manjula,

    Is Koya the same thing as the Paneer block in the Indian store? I saw on the internet that you can buy Koya and grate it.

    Can I do that instead to save time? How would I do that with your recipe?

    Thanks again very much. I have to try it out before I can make it with the kids for the Event.

    1. Rehana,
      Khoya will not work, I have tried with store baught paneer, cut the paneer in pieces blend in food processor using milk use 11/2 time milk then recipe ask for. If you are trying to make 1000 pieces may be this is the way to go.
      Good luck and please let me how did it go.

  77. Dear Manjula,

    Do I have to make the Paneer myself or can I use the ready made Paneer block that I can buy at the Indian store? I ask because I am making this with the kids for an International Event at my school and it would save us alot of time. We have over 1000 kids at the school.

  78. Ur recipe looks so easy, i m surely going to try this, but i have a doubt about the measurements u mentioned.
    Your video say 1/3 cup of milk and milkpowder, but the written recipe says 3/4 cup of milk and milkpowder.
    Kindly reply which one to follow…thanks.

  79. Thank you so much for this recipe!! I love your videos!
    Just a quick question: can you use any milk ? like can i use semi-skimmed or must it be full fat milk?
