Pedha....Festival season started

Shravan Month has already started. It's a month of different festivals. So again the month of foodies…specially for sweet lovers. I am starting my first shravan special recipe with Pedha. When I read about Jagruti's Pedha event, I thought I'll try pedha this time. For Indian Cooking Challenge we prepared 'Khoya' at home so thought can make pedha from scratch. Thanks to Srivalli of ICC :)

Ingredients


Khoya - 1 cup

Powdered Sugar - 1/4 cup

Cardamom Powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Saffron strands - 1/8 teaspoon

Chironji for decoration


Procedure

Take a heavy bottom kadai and mix khoya and powdered sugar into it. Cook this mixture on slow flame. Keep stirring continuously. After 8-10 minutes when sugar completely dissolved and the mixture became little thick, remove from the flame. (in this procedure my mixture has cooked little more, so the colour of pedha is on darker side) . Add cardamom powder and saffron strands. Mix well. Allow it to cool. Then make very small balls. Press very lightly with your palm. At the centre put one chironji and fix it. Sweet Pedhas are ready to offer 'God'.


This goes to,
