A peda without dairy products might sound strange, and that it’s made of powdered daria and ragi flour might seem even stranger; but try this once and you will not repent having walked the healthy path!
This Healthy Peda is made sans dairy products like milk or mava but has a very rich texture and taste due to the unique combination of flours.
Sweetened mildly with honey and laced with cardamom powder, this peda has a very pleasant taste achieved without any refined sugar! We have, however, used a little bit of ghee to get a rich taste and mouth-feel.
You need to knead the mixture really well; otherwise it will be difficult to form the pedas. Once you get that right, there is no going back – you are en route to satisfying your sweet cravings in a nutritious way.
You can also indulge in other healthy sweets like Pear Rabri and Ragi Sheera .
- Put ½ tbsp of ghee in a small broad non-stick pan, add the nachni flour and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
- Remove in a deep bowl and keep aside.
- Put the remaining 1½ tbsp of ghee in the same small broad non-stick pan, add the powered chana dal and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
- Transfer the mixture into the same bowl containing nachni, add the honey and cardamom powder and mix very well using your hands.
- Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and shape each portion into a 37 mm. (1½”) diameter flat round.
- Serve or store in an air-tight container. Use as required.
- This may be difficult to form into a peda but make sure you knead it very well.
