The other day, it was 'S's birthday and I wanted to make something sweet for her.I remembered the 'quick' pedhas 'V' and I had made together a year or too back.There are many recipes online on sites like 'Show me the Curry' and Vah-re-vah'.
Since making these 'pedhas' doesn't take much time, you can show your 'artistry' by decorating the pedhas in various ways and shapes.
(But if you have more time and want to make the 'real' thing....like the traditional malai pedhas......try these made with Ricotta Cheese-
For this time I had these really cute plastic/rubber trays that I use to mold the quick pedhas:
1 stick unsalted butter+ little to butter the molds
2 cups milk powder (Use Nestle Nido if you can find)
1 14oz can Sweetened Condensed milk
Heart shape pedhas:
For the Flower shape:
Red food coloring
1) Bring the butter to room temperature.
2) In a microwave safe dish, mix butter, milk powder, condensed milk and flavorings of your choice.
3) Microwave for 3 mins.At each 1 min interval, mix everything together.
4) Let it cool,then form into traditional round pedhas or mold into various shapes. Add food coloring if desired.Decorate with saffron, sprinkles or silver foil.
