Coconut-Mawa Peda for Vijaya Dashami




Shubho Bijoya /Happy Vijaya Dashami to all my friends and readers. Little late in wishing but then we have time till Kali Puja to exchange pleasantries :-) I spent last 2 weeks in Kolkata (West Bengal) during Durga Puja and enjoyed every bit of our stay. For most of Bengalis Durga Puja thrill starts from Mahalaya itself and continues till Dashami. Till wee hours we devotees thronged pandals to seek Ma Durga's blessings. To mark the occasion after Visarjan, Narkel Naru along with other sweets are distributed. 

Ingredients:
300 gms Khoya / Mawa
1 cup grated Coconut
5 tbsp Brown sugar
1/2 tsp Cardamom powder
Some extra grated coconut (2tbsp) for garnishing

Method:
Grate khoya or mawa with a grater and heat it up in a non stick pan on low heat. Keep stirring continuously and when it starts leaving ghee add brown sugar and mix well. Now add coconut, cardamom powder and stir continuously on low heat. 

When the mixture starts gooey and little sticky remove from fire. Let this sit for 5-10 minutes and then shape this mixture tightly with hands to shape them small round pedas. For decoration you may add a big pinch of grated coconut in the center. The pedas are ready to be served.
