Peda Indian sweet


1/3 cup paneer

1/3 cup milk powder

1/3 cup milk

½ cup sugar

3 tablespoon unsalted butter

¼ teaspoon cardamom powder

1 tablespoon sliced pistachios

Heat the frying pan on medium. Add butter and let it melt.

Crumble store bought paneer. Add milk, milk powder, and paneer cook mixture on medium heat stirring continuously until mixture starts leaving the sides of the frying pan and becomes like dough. This should take about 12 minutes. Now this is known as khoya.

Transfer the khoya into a bowl stir sugar and cardamom powder into the khoya and knead it for about a minute until every thing blends together and become soft dough.

Put the sugar while khoya is hot that will make pedas soft.

Divide the mix into about 20 equal parts and roll them into round balls. Lightly press it down so it looks like small patty. Put few pieces of sliced pistachios on every peda.

Pedas should be served at room temperature. Pedas can be kept for few days at room temperature and about a month refrigerated.
