Khova Peda

A free Saturday morning got me in experimental mood. I'm generally stay away from making sweets unless it's a special occasion or a festival, but this Saturday I was in the mood for something sweet. And without any recipe in hand, I decided to make khova pedas. Luckily for me, they turned out great.

Recipe Type:  Dessert
Cuisine:          North Indian
Prep Time:     10 minutes
Cook time:     90 minutes
Yield:              20-25


1 litre full fat Milk or 3/4 cup Khova
5-6 tbsp Powdered sugar
2-3 Cardamom
5-6 Almonds(Optional)

  • I made fresh khova, 1 litre of milk gave me 3/4 cup of khova. You can use store bought khova too.
  • Add 1 L of full fat milk into a non-stick pan.
  • Allow the milk to come to a boil and then lower the flame to low.
  • Keep stirring occasionally. I stirred once every 5 mins.
  • Once most of the milk has evaporated and you can see mostly milk solids, keep a close watch on the pan, you don't want to burn the whole thing. Stirring may be frequently needed.
  • Powder the cardamom and add to pan. Mix well.
  • Add the sugar by the spoonful until you get the desired sweetness. I added 5.5 tbsp. of powdered sugar.
  • Keep stirring and cooking until the whole mixture is one mass and sticks together.
  • Remove from the stove and cool for 10-15 mins, until you can shape them into pedas
  • Roll the dough into small balls and flatten them
  • Garnish with slivers of almond
  • Allow it to cool and then serve
