Whole milk - 2 Cups
Sugar - 1 Cup
Butterscotch chips - 1/4 Cup
Cardamon powder/ Elakkai powder/ Elachi - 1 Tsp
Almond pieces - For topping the pedas
Heat milk, sugar, butterscotch chips along with cardamon powder in a pan. Bring it to boil and turn the heat to medium flame. Now keep stirring the mixture once in a while until the milk reduces to 3/4 of its original volume. This will take about 20 minutes. From now on the mixture needs to be stirred continuously, so as to avoid burning.
As we stir the mixture will reduce further and get solidified. Its something very similar to making of khoya. When the milk mixture comes together as a ball without sticking to the pan, its said to be done. Let it cool for sometime and then make pedas of desired shape, topping with few almonds. Delicious pedas are ready to be offered to God and enjoyed.
