May Yacoubi's Milk Peda

As the name suggests, milk is the star ingredient of this traditional Indian sweet! Also known as Doodh Peda, this sweet treat is usually served during festive occasions like Deepavali and came from Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, India. That doesn’t mean you can’t have it as a reward on normal days (especially those with a sweet tooth). The almonds and pistachios add a nice crunch to this soft and chewy dessert.
