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 Chana Dal Ragi 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.
