Hi everyone! I hope you are doing great!! Eating pedas, barfi , and all other kinds of sweets have to be one of my favourite part of Diwali.
Deciding the menu, getting the ingredients and photographing them, has been extremely fun!!
I hope your preparations are going wonderful as well!
Starting off with today’s recipe,
200 gm khoya/mawa
1/3 cup powdered sugar
4 tbsp chopped nuts of choice
1 tsp ghee
1 tsp cardamom powder
First, add ghee to a pan and let it melt. Then add crumbled khoya into the pan.
On low flame, keep mixing and cooking the khoya for 5 minutes. It will start to melt and leave the pan.
Add the nuts and cardamom. Mix well.
Keep cooking until slight golden brown and the mawa has become smooth.
Then, transfer it to a bowl and let cool for 5 minutes.
Add the sugar into this mixture and keep mixing until well combined.
Let it cool further until it is just warm and is bearable for your hands.
Make sure you shape the pedas when they are warm or else they would not form once completely cooled.
Roll them round like a ball and press it with some nuts. Serve once done!
