Ingredients need for Mathura peda:-

» Khoya/Mawa – is a thickened milk solid that is widely used in Indian cooking. It is base for many tasty Indian recipes. I have used homemade mawa, but you can use store-bought mawa too. 

» Ghee – a must-have for this recipe. It’s the Indian form of clarified butter that adds a rich, sweet, and caramel flavor to this pede.

» Boora – Boora is porous sugar made from sugar. Sugar is cooked to its soft-ball stage, stirring continuously. Later, milk is added, and then it starts to convert into its fine granulated form. 

» Milk – adds slight moisture and helps bind our yummy pedas.

» Cardamon Powder – to enhance the flavor of these melt-in-mouth-pedas. 

» Garnishes- some extra boora to roll our pede in.

Step 1- Make Boora Sugar (demerara sugar)

1. Combine sugar and water in a heavy-bottomed pan. 

2. Cook over low to medium heat, Keep cooking the sugar mixture, while continually stirring. 

3. Cook this until the sugar melts and the mixture thickens, and it looks foamy and transparent about 5 to 6 minutes.
