  • Unsalted butter- ½ cup ( 110 grams)
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – 1.75 cups ( 14 oz can)

  • Instant non fat dry milk powder- 2 cups

  • Few Pistachio for garnish

  • Cardamom powder (optional)


  • Melt the butter in the microwave.

  • Add the sweetened condensed milk and milk powder to the melted butter and mix well.

  • Microwave for a minute, remove and mix the mixture.

  • Microwave for another minute and mix again.
  • Finally microwave for another minute and mix. The total amount of cooking is 3 minutes in the microwave.
  • Let cool for five minutes ( not more than that, if not the mixture will become dry and it will be hard to make pedas)

  • Apply some ghee on your palms, take a small portion of the mixture and make a ball. Flatten the ball and place a pistacho at the center. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.

  • Store the peda’s in the refrigerator. Stays fresh up to a week.


Each microwave setting is different, so the cooking time will slightly vary.
