Ingredients for Mawa Peda Recipe
- Mawa – 200 gms
- Sugar – 1 cup
- Cardamon – 5-6 (seeds crushed)
- Pista (pistachios) – 2 tbsp (chopped)
Procedure for preparing Mawa Peda
In a non-stick pan heat & roast mawa along with sugar till the sugar dissolves completely and the mawa changes colour slightly. The more you roast the mawa, the better the peda tastes, but take care not to burn it. Add the crushed cardamom seeds and mix well.
Allow the mixture to cool and then make small balls out of it and shape them into pedas. Garnish with chopped pistachios in the center. Allow the pedas to set properly for some hours.
