Actually this is a recipe from my daughter archana..We wanted to make it for my son when i visited her in US We did not have butter so instead we added ghee.But it turned out be some other ladoo not peda.
Take the milkmaid in a micro safe vessel and heat it for 2 minutes.Add the butter and microwave it for 1 min.Now add the milk powder till it becomes thick and microwave it for three minutes.Cool it well and then you shape it into a ball slightly flattened in the middle and you can just press pista cashew or raisin for decoration.
