Mutter Mithai

This recipe was inspired from a Master chef episode. Mutter Mithai is a delightful Indian sweet dish made with soft green peas and milk solids, delicately flavoured with gulkand, cardamom and saffron. A perfect balance of sweetness and richness in every bite!


  • 1½ cup Green peas
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • Green colour 
  • ¼ cup milk powder
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder

Filling ingredients:

  • ¼ cup gulkand
  • 2 tbsp chopped dry fruits


  1. Make sugar syrup by boiling water & sugar (until one and half string is made). Add green gel colour.
  2. Grind green peas to a smooth paste. Then cook green peas paste on a hard bottom pan in ghee.
  3. Once it is cooked for 10 minutes add sugar syrup and mix until lump free.
  4. By reducing the heat, mix the milk powder, cardamom powder. Keep mixing till it is reduced and swirls into the shape of a ball.
  5. Keep kneading the dough when it is warm, using a silicon mat will make the process easy.
  6. Prepare the filling by mixing the filling ingredients.
  7. Take a small part from the dough, flatten it, put a spoonful of filling then cover it by pulling the edges and seal it carefully.
  8. Make a smooth ball by rotating between the palms.
  9. Use a silver leaf and saffron to decorate the mithai.
