One can never stop wondering what all milk can be used for, be it giving a glass-full to kids, making milk shakes, having a healthy breakfast with oats and cornflakes, or making sweets. The versatility of milk is undisputed. Talking about sweets, it can be used to make Milk Peda, a simple yet delicious sweet. There is always something special about what you make yourself, and although you can make a lovely simple peda, I bought a design stamp to create a nice impression on my pedas for an enhanced appeal. You too can buy these stamps from local sweet shops, or just let your simplicity create the magic. Let’s get started!
