to every one.....for more on this see here and here ..Devotees of Shiva observe a fast during Mahashivratri , so i observe fast today, but my fast is not what you call a fast..I can't stay hungry so i do make Vrat food, and eat it more than I would in normal days...so is it really worth it to fast? well yes so you can indulge yourself in to heavy food..basically the vrat food has much more fat and sugar content....:(([Glitterfy.com - *Glitter Words*]It's an excuse to eat rich food, so fasting for me only happens about twice a year.....So here I come with my one of the dish which i made for shivratri, yes and i want to call it sinful because after seeing the ingredients you will agree with me..from now on I am starting my Sinful series...I'VE TRIED MANY TIMES MAKING PEDA WITH MAVA OR KHOYA, but never suceeded then someone told me years ago that why don't you try it out with Recotta cheese and i gave it a go and it turned out really well....since then I always make peda using recotta cheese...
You will need:-
100 g Ricotta cheese (Full fat)
75 g full fat milk powder
30 ml double cream
100 g sugar
2 tbsp ghee
Saffron threds soaked in little warm milk
1 tsp cardamom powder
few pistacho for decoration
Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan, keep heat low and add cheese, milk powder and cream. Mix well and keep stirring so doesn't stick to bottom of the pan. Now add sugar and saffron milk and keep stirring till everything comes together and becomes a one mass. Mixture should be like cookie dough so you can roll or make it into a shape. let it cool, now add cardamom powder and mix well. Take small amount of mix and make a small ball or give any shape like i made them into a heart shape. I didn't add any food colour, this is the natural colour from saffron..
Enjoy them as much as we did...
Sending this to Priya's event Heart's for the St Valantine's day .
