Pedas

Today is our 7th Wedding Aniversary and I thought I would begin the day with sweets. So yesterday I made these lovely pedas. They are very easy and quick to make.My 5 year old little daughter helped me and we had fun making this..

This is my entry for Trupti's ' Little Chefs in the kitchen' Event and Meeta's 'Monthly Mingle- Sweet love'. Though it may be a bit late for the Sweet love event,but I thought will be nice to post this on my Wedding day which would surely be the best day to show the love I have for my Better half. Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Ingredients

Sweetened condensed milk(whole milk)- 1 tin
milk powder- 2 cups
butter-4 tbsp(room temp)
crushed pistas and almonds- a few
food colour(optional)- any colour u like
saffron-(optional)- a few
silver warq- optional
cardomom powder- a pinch

Method

In a microwave bowl add the butter and heat it for 2 mins or till it is melted.
Add the milk powder and condensed milk, mix it well and microwave it for 2 minutes.
Add the cardomom powder,saffron and food colour at this stage and microwave for 4 minutes , taking out and stirring after 2 minutes.
Cool it completely and make pedas of ur desired shape.
Add crushed nuts on the top of the pedas and press it. Apply the silver warq.

note

For shaping the pedas take a lid from a small bottle, keep a few nuts inside and place a ball of pedas on it. press well and invert it. U will get lovely round pedas.

Rami said...

Hey Prema,

Tried this sweet today.. it was awesome.. Thank u for wonderful easy recipe.

Kaburlu said...

Hi Prema

Fantastic and easy recipe. But today when I tried, it turned out to be a disaster. Please help me where I went wrong and how I can rectify it without having it throw it all.

Basically my dough/base turned out very tasty but very crumbly and dry. I am just not able to make any shapes and it does not have a smooth finish like yours does. I followed ur recipe exactly esp the 1 tin of condensed milk and 2 cups of powder. Please help me!

Thank you so much for posting this, which is needed for the birthday party of a (late and much loved) friend!

Being European, I'm going to have to convert measurements to metric and try it myself first. What a shame we'll have to eat my attempts first...
