Mango Peda/ Two Layer Peda



Milk peda is an all time favorite Indian sweet. This time I wanted to try making it with mangoes ( actually I had one tin of mango pulp). The richness and flavor of this sweet is truly divine. Here I did a two layer peda. First layer is the usual milk peda. You can find the recipe here. I got the idea of using ricotta cheese from Nayana. It saves a lot of time, thanks Nayana...The second layer recipe is as follows.

Ingredients
Ricotta Cheese - 2 cups
Mango pulp- 1 cup
Mawa - 3 tsp
Evaporated  milk- 1/3 cup
Sugar- 1/2 cup ( according to sweetness of Mango)
Cardamon Powder - 1/2 tsp
Badam or pistachios for garnish


In a non stick pan cook mango puree till it is cooked and reduced . Blend in mawa, evaporated  milk and ricotta cheese and stir in medium flame for about eight or ten minutes till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan and becomes a thick mass. Allow it to cool completely and add in powdered sugar and cardamon powder and knead it just like a dough. Grease your hand with butter or ghee and roll into desired shapes and garnish.


This recipe goes to Jagruthi's  and Niveditha wonderful event


And Akila's wonderful event CID 2010 event.I would love to dedicate this recipe to the "Prince of Patriots"- Subhas Chandra Bose.
