as i was explaining earlier, this recipe can also be made in the microwave. however, the ingredients change if you wish to make it in the microwave. you would be better of using condensed milk rather than just milk powder and sugar. in addition, it is more quick and easy to make as it does not have continuous stirring and mixing. moreover, the condensed milk solidifies with the heat and hence it makes out a quick and easy dessert. however, there are some benefits of making it with milk powder and hence i chose this way to make it. firstly, the combination of desiccated coconut and condensed milk may lead to a chewy texture. even though it would solidify, may not have the real peda texture. further, the condensed milk option may not be suitable if you wish to control the sweetness level. for some, it may be too sweet and some may feel less sweet. hence it is better to opt for the milk powder and sugar option.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the creamy coconut peda recipe. firstly, with the desiccated coconut, you get 2 options with it. avoid using the long striped desiccated coconut as it may not gel together to form the round shape. you may use fresh coconut too but may have to cook more to remove the excess moisture. secondly, choose full cream milk powder and do not compromise on the quality of milk powder. in addition to the milk powder, you may also use cocoa powder to make it more flavoured and chocolaty. lastly, i have decorated each peda with colourful strawberry jam. this step is to make it more attractive and colourful. you may skip it or even have other options like cherry, dry fruits or tutti frutti.
