This name is given by one of our lovely group member GayatRishi Chopra, so I want to thank her to suggest such a lovely name to my dish. Thank you so much dear.
Actually this one is complete experiment dish. I was having full two liters of milk which I had to use at any cost as it was going to expire very next day. Suddenly idea stuck to mind , why not to make mawa of it and I poured whole milk in a wide pan and started thickening it. But in mid way, I changed my mind and thought , no I don't want mawa .... Let's make some sweet out of it and till then my milk reached to the consistency of rabdi. Suddenly I remembered about left over ghee residue in my fridge , which no one is interested to eat as it is. So used that too and viola the end product is superbly delicious and beautiful sweet . Actually I tried to recreate a very scrumptious sweet , we used to relish on from our childhood days and even now have craving for that. It was UP college ka lal peda. Our grand father used to bring for us without fail, whenever he visits us. And this one is more alike that one, not exactly but too much.
If you are having ghee residue at your home then try this simple and only three ingredients scrumptious delight, you will never regret. Although it is time consuming dish but at the end you will forget everything before it's heavenly taste.

First of all boil milk in a wide and thick bottom wok. Let it thicken at medium flame, stirring occasionally to avoid sticking to bottom.

*** Don't forget to stir it every now and then, as it may burn at the bottom.
Now lower the flame and continue cooking, stirring constantly till it become a nice mass and not having any moisture trail.
