Instent pala kova -- Doodh Peda - Milk Fudge

Two days back when I was talking to my sister That time she is making Pala kova for a party. She told me that she can make them in 5 to 7 minutes in a microwave. I thought she was talking about the original recipe how we make pala kova by boiling the milk for long time. Normally I make pala kova(peda) by evaporating the milk in a low heat for long time.  And I know that some recipes what we cook for long time on a stove top. They will take very short time in microwave. But some reasons I don't like to use microwave oven in my cooking. It is good but some how I don't like microwave cooking, That is my opinion.
                                                       Any way coming to the recipe, This is very easy to make. I use the recipe what my sister has given to me. But I cooked it on stove top, That take few more minutes extra time. If you have condensed milk and milk powder in hand we can make delicious Pala kova (Doodh Peda) in just 10 minutes. Only time taking job in this recipe is chopping the nuts. No need of adding sugar in this because we are using condensed milk which is sweetened. If you want your peda more sweet then you can add how much sugar you want that is your choice. I used cardamom to give flavor to this you can add any other flavoring agents like saffron. I made this pedas for Rakhi  they are really just melting in mouth. A big Thanks to my sister. Thank you Radha for this delicious recipe, we really enjoyed them. I am again going to make them for friendship day.. Ok let's check the recipe.........
