Peda, Penda, Pera

This recipe i saw on the net by lovely blogger whose name is Simi.   I loved her way of making peda or whatever you call as name varies with different tribes.



Instant Peda


If there was a peda - hall of fame, this recipe would be right there. I loved the outcome. It was a tad bit sweet for my better half, i.e if you try and eat three at once. They do get a bit hard when refrigerated, so I have modified the original recipe a bit. It has a low shelf life, you might not have to worry much about that. :) But expired condensed milk is something to worry about,  since it is usually in a tin can, it can get rusted. Well I have some visuals. Am not quizzing you guys to tell me which of these are expired. So watch out, those date are not random numbers.

 No this is not paint.  This has not been photoshopped to enhance color.  I found the old can tucked way back in my pantry, it had expired 7 months ago. Obviously, I was not going to use it but opened it just to see what it looks like. Note to self: read more about food safety in tin cans.

1 can of condensed sweetened milk
1 3/4 cup milk powder
3 tbsp clarified butter/ ghee
2-4 tsp milk
1 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 tsp saffron

Mix the condensed milk and milk powder and mix well in a microwave safe container. Microwave for a minute. Mix well, add ghee, microwave for 30 seconds. Mix again. Microwave for 30 seconds, mix, add milk and microwave again for another minute, stir it in between. Remove, let it cool, preferably keep covered and once you know you can manage the heat. Grease your fingers with ghee, roll them, with a gentle hand. If you think it is too hard, add more milk and microwave for 30sec. Needs refrigeration.



how awesome is that. All the best for more.

I want to curl up here and enjoy my leisure time with a book and cup of hot chocolate /coffee late and relax whilst the Sunshine warms me and the breeze plays through my hair.
