Dood peda (milk balls)

leave a comment »

I think I’ve posted the “hard” version of dood peda on this blog sometime before. These are ultra-sweet little caramelized milk balls somewhere between candy and pastry. My mother-in-law found an easy version that takes only 10 minutes:

  • 3/4 stick butter (1/2 stick might be enough)
  • 1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup nonfat powdered dried milk
  • 1 pinch ground cardamom
  • 1 pinch saffron threads
  • Optional: slivered almonds or shelled pistachios to garnish

Cook everything together for 10 minutes. (I think this would be improved by cooking it longer so the sugars caramelize, but it’s delicious only cooked for 10 minutes.) When cool enough to handle, shape into little flattened balls of about a tablespoon in size, and garnish with an almond or pistachio.
