we are only two (I and hubby) at home, So i have made with only ½ of can of condensed milk. But you can double or triple the recipe as needed. if so you may need to adjust the cooking time.
Storing the peda: It stays good for 3-4 days in airtight container in the fridge. Make sure to store in single layer in the container. If you are stacking them on top of each other, then make sure to line a parchment paper between them to avoid sticking.
Serving suggestion: Enjoy this doodh peda any time of the day whenever you are craving for something sweet. In many religious pooja, it is offered to god as a prasad and then to the devotees. During the diwali or any other occasion or festival, you can give it away to your relatives or friends. If giving someone as a gift, do pack them in decorative box. It will look good.

Other than condensed milk, this recipe calls for full fat milk powder and butter. For the better flavor and taste, please use full fat milk powder. In USA, we get only nonfat milk powder in America grocery stores. You will find full fat one in Indian grocery store. It is also labeled as mawa powder.
