MATHURA PEDA

Mathura Peda is most renowned for its divine and unique taste. These authentic fudge Purely made of Khoya - milk solids and Sugar and flavoured with Cardamom and Nutmeg.


In Gujarati, these are known as Mathura Na Peda.




Mathura Ke Pede, not just regular khoya peda, they are special. They are definitely not glossy or sticky, also dark caramel colour and irregularly shaped and coated in powdered sugar.


Any relatives or friends visiting Mathura, surely they will fetch you one of the most important Mathura ke Pede.  According to some research Peda first originated in Mathura itself ( Birthplace of Lord Krishna ) thus these pedas are used as 'Prasad' in Mathura temples.


I am lucky enough to visit Mathura twice up to now. Once with my parents and recently I took my daughter to Mathura, unfortunately, filthy streets, foul-smelling environs and food exposed to flies, insects and dust did put us off buying anything edible as for us, it was hard to even breath. So left the idea of getting any prasad, instead got little Kanha and his Jhula ( baby krishna idol and small swing ) as prasad.


There was a regret for not getting the Peda Prasad, however, I promised my daughter that I will make you Mathura Peda at home. A few weeks back I had a chance to try my hands on to making penda for Janmashtami, also used up my homemade khoya. but didn't get time to post on that day.




Better late than never ! If you've never made Mathura ke pede, maybe the time is now. If you love peda as much as I do, we are on the same page. Now that Navratri begun, it's a perfect time to try your hands on. They are phenomenal !!!!!


Great for Prasad as these pedas are nut-free, nowadays we are not allowed to take Prasad with Nuts in many places.



TIPS

Fry or roast khoya properly or until totally brown.
If khoya roasted properly these pedas can stay good until a month.
