A sight of these pedas just makes you pop one in your mouth. These easy- to-melt-in -the-mouth – dessert is really simple to make. In this post learn how to shape and design these pedas. I shaped these pedas with whatever I could find in my kitchen drawer – but let your imagination get to work.
Do you have thread reels at home they usually have pretty imprints on them – use them to put designs on your pedas. Other brilliant idea would be – kids unused ink stamp – use them to create impressive designs on pedas.
HOW TO SHAPE PEDAS ?
Once the peda dough is ready – time to shape them.
TRICK 1 – Spread it on a aluminium foil and using a cookie cutter or small katori cut it into a round ball.Using a toothpick start designing them – as shown in the picture. Sprinkle cardamom powder and nuts and peda is ready.
TRICK 2 – Take peda dough in your hand, work it between your palms and shape them into a round ball, flatten them out and using your finger tips round up the peda edges. Design it with a toothpick and enjoy.
Other ways to design pedas – use a pen cover, fork, anything that had a design – just press it over the pedas and BINGO pedas are ready!!
