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.
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.
