How to make Mathura ke Pede

  1. Take a heavy bottom pan or kadhai, heat and put mawa in it. Keep on stirring continuously so that it does not stick in the pan. It will start changing colour in some time, add some ghee at this point.
  2. Keep stirring, now whenever it changes colour keep adding milk. Do this til mawa becomes brown.
  3. Let mawa cool completely. Now add 400 gram of tagar and cardamom powder, mix well.
  4. Spread the remaining tagar on a plate. Take a lemon size ball of mixture in hand and give it a shape of a peda. Now roll this peda on tagar and press a little by hand.
  5. Similarly make rest of the pedas. Leave them to dry for half to one hour outside and then store in airtight container.
  6. Enjoy simple yet flavourful divine sweet.

My Tip:

home made mawa is best.

Keep it on a stove to boil and stir the mixture continuously for 2-3 minutes. Once the mixture starts to boil add milk to it. You will see a dirty foam appearing over the mixture, take it out with the help of a ladle. The dirt of the sugar gets cleaned this way. Cook the mixture for 8-10 minutes.
