Chocolate Peda (Indian Sweet) in Microwave

 



                                                                  
Pedas are very popular Indian sweets. Like most Indian sweets, pedas have diverse regional variations as they are combined with various other ingredients like saffron, cardamom seeds and wheat flour. I have made chocolate peda today even the very mention of chocolate  in any dish makes my son's eyes light up and he becomes eager :-) This microwave process is so simple that you simply can't go wrong with this even the first time you prepare it.


Serves: Makes about 22-24 pedas, Preparation time: 6-7 minutes


Ingredients:
1 can (14 0z.) Condensed milk
6 tbsp unsalted Butter
3 cup Milk powder
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder (eliachi)
1/2 cup Cocoa powder


For decoration : 1 tbsp grated chocolate and 10-12 cashews


Method:
Place butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave (at100%) for 12 seconds. Now in the same bowl whisk together milk powder, choco powder, condensed milk and cardamom powder. Total time to microwave this mixture is 8 minutes, however, to allow uniform gelling of the mixture, take out the mixture from the microwave after every 2 minutes and stir well. Let the mixture cool down. Grease your palm with a little ghee before shaping them in our desired shapes, so that the mixture doesn't stick to your palm. Decorate the pedas with grated chocolate and cashews. Enjoy !!!
