  • 1 cup Unsweetened Khoya crumbled
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 2-3 tbsp Milk
  • Almonds for garnishing


  • Take the crumbled khoya in a pan and heat for a minute.
  • Add milk and sugar and mix well.
  • Let the sugar dissolves completely.
  • Keep stirring over a medium-low flame until the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Add cocoa powder and mix until combined.
  • Remove from the flame and let it cool down.
  • When the mixture warm enough to handle, knead it into a smooth dough. Grease your hand with little ghee if needed.
  • Divide the mixture into equal-sized balls.
  • Shape them into flat discs and press lightly chopped almonds in the center.


Do not over-cook the peda mixture.
You can also use pistachios or cashews instead of almonds.
They stay good for 2 days at room temperature and for a week in the refrigerator.
