Mango Peda and Nan Khatai - Double Celebrations and Double Treats !

Yap..we are having double celebrations in our family today....First one is Celebrating Krishna Janamasthmi ~ Yashoda Maiya's Bal Gopal Lord Krishna's Birthday and My Bal Gopal Yash Krish's Birthday...and I would like to say to both Bal Gopal MANY MANY HAPPY RETURNS OF THE DAY......So lots of Joy, Happiness and Treats today....I know both of them are not Bal Gopal any more, but for ma they are always their babies....and I made their favourite treats to please them....so when I get older they both treat me;)...and here is mine and my son's most favourite song...please enjoy..and the treats are MANGO PEDA for Krishna and NAN KHATAI for Yash....which he absolutely adores.....




Let's start with Mango Peda :- Mango Milk Fudge...
Summer is slippping away from our hands now..and I wanted to have the seasons last  treat which is Mango..so I thought why not indulge in  Mango Peda...



You will need:-
  • 2 cups Milk powder
  • 2 cups Mango Pulp
  • 4-5 tbsp Double Cream
  • 3-4 tbsp Sugar (adjust how sweet is your Mango pulp)
  • 1/4 cup Dessicated coconut
  • 1 tsp Ghee
Method:-
In a non stick pan heat ghee and add Mango pulp and stir until Mango Pulp becomes little thicker.  Leave it a side..In another non stick pan add coconut and Milk powder and roast on a very low heat about 4-5 minutes..make sure it doesn't stick or burn. Now add thicken mango pulp, cream and Sugar and fry the mixture till it becomes a one mass and you can see Ghee leaving the pan.  Let it cool completely.  Now take small amount of mixture, make small balls and give them a shape of your choice.



These pedas going to my event Celebrate sweets-Pedha and Sanyukta,s Visual Treat...

Nan Khatai - Indian Spiced Shortbread Cookies



Nan Khatai (Nan-khat-aa-ee) eggless cookies originated from South Asia..extremley popular in India and Pakistan..Light, slightly crispy and nutty flavioured cookies, just melt in your mouth and they are perfect with your tea or coffee.. delicate enough that it just crumble....and that's the way I like it...

You will need:-
  • 500 g Plain flour
  • 50g Chickpea flour
  • 70g Semolina
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 400g ghee - room temprature
  • few threads of saffron
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • few pisatachio and almond silvers
Method:-
In a big bowl beat the ghee and sugar until fluffy.  Now add Flours, semolina, baking powder and spices.(except Nuts). Bind into a dough. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4-5 and make small balls and flatten slightly.  Place on a greased line baking tray..Leave enough space between them.  Bake in a pre-heated oven about 7-8 minutes.  Take the cookies out and place almonds and pistachio in the centre, return to the oven abd bake further 7-8 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack...And enjoy as much as my son did.....

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
