"A friend gave me this recipe. I haven't tried them as I do not have khoya, but they sound wonderful. :-) Enjoy! The prep time includes the cooking time. I've never made them so I do not know how to divide the time between prep and cooking time. If you make them, please make that correction if you wish. Thanks!"

  • First combine khoya and sugar in a sauce pan and heat on low, stirring constantly, until it thickens.
  • When thickened, it should form into a soft mass.
  • Allow it to cool for approximately 10-12 minutes.
  • Next you will add the cardamom powder yellow coloring, and combine very well.
  • Roll a nice amount of dough into a ball (2 inch balls) and press finger into center to make a small well and press 2-3 slices of pistachio in the centers.

    This is really delicious, very addictive and truly yummy. However, the only problem is that I could not make this into pedhas! I followed steps 1 and 2 without a problem. After the mxture of khoya and sugar had formed into a soft mass, I put 8 strands of saffron into my mixer and turned the mixer on and processed until the strands broke apart into many smaller strands(about 1-2 minutes). I added these strands to the khoya-sugar mixture(I used saffron as a substitute for yellow food colour and also for authenticity) and combined it very well. I could not carry out steps 5 and 6 because the khoya-sugar mixture was really such a soft mass that it slipped out of my hands when I tried shaping it into pedhas(small balls). So, what I did was this: I transferred the mixture to a medium sized serving bowl and allowed it to cool down to room temperature. Then, I covered it and refrigerated it. It took about 3-4 hours to set into a beautiful white khoya pudding that tasted so delish I can't tell you enough in words! We all enjoyed it to the core!! Also, I made a new treat of my own - I spooned some of the sugar-khoya mixture(got in step4), over some sliced bananas and YUM! It sure tasted like heaven! I served it that way to some kids and some of them had it mixed with vanilla ice-cream. Either ways, they said it was superb! Everyone asked for the recipe. Nobody knew this was to turn into pedhas, but rather turned into what they felt was a pleasant yummy icing/pudding!


Since April 2008, I have been a vegetarian. I dont eat creatures...that's the easiest way to put it! :D I still eat a small amount of dairy, but not very much. I have been missing around here for a while, and hope to poke my head in a bit more often from now on... I hope you enjoy my recipes...
