Blueberry Peda with Khoya | Peda with Khoya Recipe

Peda with Mawa

Indian Festival Sweets Recipe

I always love to experiment in my kitchen as I have said earlier it is more like a chemistry lab. So today's post is also an experiment which went well and tastes good too. When we were in school we used to make khoya from scratch for making gulab jamun and also for adding in other sweets. The fresh khoya always tastes more yummier than the store bought one. Today I decided to make khoya from scratch, it is a tedious job to stand in one place for more than 40 mins and cooking the milk in very low flame, but I succeeded and the out come was really well made khoya. 

Blueberry Recipes

Home made Peda Recipe

Last weekend we went to pick some blueberries, it was the last picking of the season and am glad we did it. My daughter enjoyed picking the yummy juicy berries. So you will be seeing some blueberry recipes coming in the blog. Usually berries are underestimated and made used only in making preserves and jams, I wanted to make something different and so the idea popped up of making Blueberry flavored peda, he he yes I succeeded again in making them. You can also add blueberry extract for the blueberry flavor to pop up but I could taste the berry in this peda. I didn't add any color but you are open to add purple food color if you like. Now am very excited to share my experiment, it tasted just like store bought peda but with a berry flavor in it..  Before that for all Rajani fans enjoy Kabali fever.. Am a big fan of thalaiva and so desi fiesta is also starting the sweets on Kabali release :).. So awaiting to see the movie in theater..

Blueberry Peda with Khoya

                                             Category  Preparation time Cook Time   
          15 mins
 10- 15 mins     

  Mawa / Khoya - 1/2 cup ( I made it at home)
  Blueberry Puree - 1/2 cup ( puree it in mixer and strain it to smooth puree)
  Condensed Milk - 1/2 tin 
  Heavy Cream - 1/4 cup

  Butter - 2 tbsp
  Cardamom pd - a pinch
  Silvered Almonds - For garnish
  •  In a sauce pan heat the butter , after it melts add blueberry puree.
  •  Mix it well and the add mawa, condensed milk, cardamom, heavy cream.
  • Mix it well with a ladle , make sure there are no lumps.
  • Cook the mixture till everything comes together, don't forget to stir it constantly and it should not stick to the pan anymore till that you have to keep on stiring. It should leave the sides and the mixture should come together like a mass or dough.
  • In a plate transfer the mixture and let it cool.
  • Once it cools down a bit, divide them to equal parts and roll it to a smooth ball.
  • Press the ball slightly and give it a peda shape. For the impression on the peda you can use a cookie press or just give designs using a tooth pick or skewer.
  • Store the pedas in air tight container.
  • If the peda mixture is too loose you will not be able to form the shape.So place the mixture on a sauce pan again and cook for some more time , as I said it should form a mass and nothing should stick on the pan.
  • You can adjust the sweet as you like or  depending on the sweetness of blueberries. Mine were freshly picked so it was little tangy .
