Hello Dearies!!! We celebrated Ganpati Bappa for 5 days. I tried making prasad for 3 days. Day 1 I made Ukdiche Modak, Day 2 I made Sheera and Day 4 I made These Pedas. I was invited for the aarti and puja at my dear friends home. I took these along for prasad. The kids had a blast eating these and declared they were better than the store brought. Ideally the recipe said use Khoya or fresh mava, But I could not find fresh mava that I liked at my regular grocery store, so I replaced the fresh with dry mava powder. The texture is not dry like peda but creamy like a barfi. Make them for Ganpati bappa today. It's only day 6 or the 10 day celebrations.
You will need;
2 cups Mava Powder
1 Cup Confectioner Powder
1 tspn Cardamom Powder
1 tbspn Everest Milk Masala- Optional--** Substitute with almond and pistachio powder--Optional
1 Tsp Clarified butter
little yellow food color-Optional
In a wok, heat the ghee, then add the milk/mava powder and the milk and stir well and cook on low heat till the mixture gets well incorporated, add the milk masala, cardamom/dry almond pista powder and stir well and cook till the mixture starts collecting on the spoon. cooking this in a non stick would work well. Turn off the heat. add in the confectioners sugar, mix well till the sugar mixture gets incorporated. add in the yellow food color and mix well.Cool the mixture for about 5-6 hours. Take a teaspoon of the mix and roll out small pedas or shape them into modaks. I d not have the mold to make these pedas so I shaped them with my hand.
Ganpati Bappa Morya!!!! Mangal moorti Morya!!!
