I was yearning for some sweets and coconut being my super favorite, I always find ways and means to make something out of it.

Few months ago I made Mango Coconut Ladoos and it was loved by my family. Moreover a fresh batch of Condensed milk was ready that day, and dessicated coconut and milk powder was already there in my pantry.

So I decided to go ahead with making coconut peda as this was on my to do list since long.

Instructions to make Coconut Peda

Heat a thick bottom non-stick pan on slow flame, add the desiccated coconut.

Dry roast  it for 2 minutes on slow flame constantly stirring so that the colour of the coconut doens’t change.

Once coconut turns aromatic take out in a bowl and keep aside.

Now in the same pan on low flame, add 2 tbsp of ghee and let it melt. To this pour condensed milk and cook for a minute.

Next add milk powder, and roasted desiccated coconut, cardamom powder and rose water, mix everything well.

Stir for 1-2 min and check the consistency of the mixture. If required add more of Condensed milk.

Please do not over cook it, as otherwise peda will turn hard and chewy.

Switch off the flame immediately and transfer the mixture on to the plate.

Keep aside for 3 to 4 minutes to cool a bit. Once the mixture is still warm it’s ready to make pedas out of it. Grease your palms with ghee.

Take a golf ball size portion, and roll it round and flatten it from top. Here I have made design using knife on the top of pedas.
