How to make Mango Peda?

Convert those lovely mangoes into these tasty Pedas with this step-by-step recipe with photos. Peda is perhaps the simplest Milk-based sweet dish that is common across India. Walk into any sweet/savory store and you’ll almost always find the famous Doodh Pedha (or Milk Pedha).

It’s an instant hit with kids and grown-ups alike. Indian sweets are so varied that it’s difficult to run out of options when it comes to sweet dishes in Indian cuisine. So we have combined the best fruit in India – the Mango, with the simplest sweet dish – the Peda.

So what we have here is a Mango Peda that combines the simplicity and goodness of the Doodh Peda with the king of fruits, the Mango. In this particular recipe, we have used Sendhura variety Mangoes which are less fibrous and naturally sweet. However, you could use any variety of ripe Mangoes. Just remember to use pulpy mangoes and avoid fibrous ones.

Celebrate the Mango season with these little Pedas!

Also, another thing to remember is if the Mangoes are too sweet then the Peda might also turn out very sweet. So taste a Mango first from the batch you are going to use and then vary the amount of sugar that we’ll need to use.

We’ve added a quarter cup of sugar here but a batch of Pedas turned out a little more sweet than we’d like. However, this might also be dependent on personal preference as some people have more sweet sensitivity than others.

Having said that this Peda celebrates the Mango (which is available only in the Indian summers) like no other sweet dish would. And because these Pedas come in such chota packages :-), they are easy to consume.

These Mango Pedas comes in a bite-size format but they taste heavenly!

Serving suggestions – we ate this alongside Lunch, and also a snack in the evenings. But you can be flexible in how you eat this. Just be a little careful when you serve this to kids as they may overeat (since it’s high in calories). We didn’t try this with a sugar substitute, and used regular sugar. This Mango Peda can be stored in a air-tight container for upto a week.
