This is the first time I am participating in Coffee’s MBP Event. Thanks Coffee for conducting such an interesting event. But there is one problem my weighing balance is not behaving . The needle says NO and turns to the right. All because of these sweets πŸ™‚ )


I must say Trupti’s post on Sukhadi did have some magic on me. I saw her post at seven in the morning and within two minutes I was heading to the kitchen to make it.

This is a traditional Gujarati sweet made on special occasions, and also served as a Prasad at Mahudi in the temple of Lord Ghanatakarna Mahavir .

The ingredients are readily available and the recipe is quick to make yet tasty . Prasads are always tasty .


Trupti thanks for sharing such a lovely recipe .


The second recipe which appealed me is Prema Sunder’s Pedas. As everyone by now knows I am a little lazy when cooking is concerned. I am on the look for easy to cook and quick recipes.

So Prema’s recipe caught my eye. I decided to make it. As luck would have it I stumbled on to Ramyas blog too. She had made ladoos with condensed milk and Mango puree.

Since Premas’s recipe also had condensed milk as an ingredient , I decided to add Mango puree to Prema’s recipe . So in a way I combined two recipes to make one.


Prema’s recipe was made in a microwave. Even I made the sweet in a microwave. It hardly took any time to make it. A very quick recipe indeed.

There are a few changes I made in the recipe. I added mango puree and also substituted the butter for ghee. I have not added any food colour.


One tin Sweetened condensed milk

2 cups milk powder ( I used Every Day Dairy Whitener)

One cup mango puree ( fresh / canned)

1 tsp ghee (Prema used butter. )

2 green cardamom powdered.

Almonds for decoration.

METHOD-Combine everything in microwave safe bowl.

Mix well.

Microwave everything at HIGH for 4 minutes stirring after every two minutes.

Microwave for 3 minutes on HIGH, stirring after every 1 minute.

Microwave further at shorter intervals of 30- 50 seconds till the mixture thickens .

Let the mixture cool. Shape it into a ladoos or pedas. Keep it in the fridge.

I want to thank Prema and Ramya for sharing such lovely recipes which inspired me to make it.
