Mava Penda / Peda (Organic), A delicious indian sweet.

Ingredients(for 10 piece)
Mava/khova/khoya - 2/3 cup (I prefer homemade organic mava. Recipe posted here),
Powdered sugar - 1/4 cup,
Ghee (clarified butter) - 1 1/2 tsp,
Milk - 2 tbsp,
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp,
Almond flax - for garnishing.



Method
In a pan, add mava and milk. Cook it in low flame. Keep stirring continuously else it will stick into the pan. After 8-10 minutes add ghee and keep stirring.  After sometime it will turn into thick lump, its time to turnoff the heat.


Take the mix out in a plate, add powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Mix well with hand. Make 10 equal sized balls. Grease your palms with little ghee and roll each ball and flatten a bit. Top up with almond flax.


Notes
Add saffron for yellow color & flavor. Avoid artificial color.
If  mixture dries out, add few drops of milk.
Almond flax can be replaced by any other nut.
Increase/decrees amount of sugar as per your taste.
Try to get organic ingredients if accessible.
