Pistachio Rose Peda ( Milk Fudge) Diwali Sweets

A twist to the traditional milk peda with my creation of pistachio and rose. As you can tell, I do like playing with Indian flavours. Last year I played with Indian Chocolate flavours this year I’ve decided to go a little more traditional route.

Pistachio Rose Peda

A peda or penda is an Indian sweet, usually a thick and semi soft. The main ingredients are milk, sugar and some sort of flavouring. The word peda means a blob of dough.

Rose paste huh?! I here you, but you should be able to find it at any Indian or Chinese supermarket. May also be called gulkhand, specially at an Indian supermarket. If you can’t find any you can always add a little thick strawberry jam or crushed nuts.

Once the mixture thickens and comes away from the sides then take off the heat and turn onto a greased surface.
