Malai Peda

Heavy Cream - 1 quart (I use Whole Foods 365 brand cream which is without any additives)
Organic Whole Milk - 4 cups
Turbinado / Demerera Sugar - 3 tbsp. (approximately, adjust according to your desired sweetness)

Bring the milk and cream  to a boil in a heavy bottomed pan. Simmer and cook on low heat for around an hour. Keep stirring the milk so that it doesn't stick to the bottom.

After around an hour, the milk gets very thick. At this point we have to continuously stir otherwise it can get burnt easily. Add the sugar and continue to cook for 10 more minutes till the mixture comes together almost like a soft ball.

Pour the thickened milk on a plate. Let it cool a little, then make small pedas of the desired shape. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
