Peda or penda are an Indian milk-based sweet similar to fudge. 

Rajwadi Peda are unique in that they are made by boiling and reducing whole milk with sugar until the milk forms a grainy or danedar consistency. Milk or Doodh Peda are similar but tend to be smoother in texture. 

Rajwadi Peda can be found in Gujarat, similar to our Rajkot na Peda.

① Whole milk - try to get milk which has a higher percentage of fat. In the UK we got hold of only 3.6%. The higher the percentage, the better danedar texture you can achieve.

② Sugar - regular granulated sugar

💡Tips to make the best Rajwadi Peda

  • use heavy bottom pan - you will need to boil milk for hours without it burning
  • Make sure the pan is spotlessly clean, any leftover stuck food will cause the milk to stick to it and burn
  • Keep continuously stirring
  • use high-fat percentage milk for the best texture and taste
  • You will need a high volume of milk - it may seem like a lot at first but it will reduce down considerably. For example, 4L of milk makes approx. 1kg of peda
  • keep the heat of the milk between 75C and 100C - this is a slow process and adding more heat will only cause the milk to burn.
  • you will see that the milk begins to slowly thicken and form solids. When it has formed solids, take the mixture off the heat and transfer to a plate to cool before shaping. 
  • Peda should be shaped once the mixture is at room temperature
  • Use a little dab of ghee on your palms when shaping to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands. 
  • If you feel the mixture is little loose, leave the mixture in the fridge for 4-5 hours then make peda. 
  • If the mixture is too grainy, slightly grind the mixture in a grinder and make peda. 

Variation or Flavours

Although these Rajwadi Peda are so tasty as they are but one can experiment with other flavours.
