Kaju Peda

Anaya was craving for Pedas one day. With very limited choice of ingredients the challenge was to soothe her sweet tooth. I checked my pantry and the idea of making Cashew Nut Pedas struck me.

Google is god as always. A little bit of research and the ingredients were lined up.

The end result was simply delicious.

Ingredients

1 cup cashew nuts soaked for 3 hours,

1/2 cup sugar,

1/2 cup milk,

1/4th tsp cardamom powder,

3 tsp clarified butter / ghee

Method

Grind together soaked cashew nuts and sugar to a smooth paste.

Heat a heavy bottom pan, melt the ghee and put the ground cashew paste and stir well.

Add milk and keep stirring till you get a lumpy mass that does not stuck to the pan. This takes approximately 7 minutes.

Mix in the cardamom powder and switch off the gas.

Allow it to cool down a bit and shape them into pedas.
