HAPPY MAHASHIVRATRI To All My Dear Blogger Friends...!!!
On this auspicious occasion i am posting a very unique sweet recipe.I am saying its unique as this sweet is used making a vegetable ie green peas.Green peas gives this sweet a very nice taste as well as a nice colour naturally.
- 200 grams fresh green peas
- 150 grams sugar
- 100 grams milk powder
- 50 grams cashew nut powder
- 1 tea spoon vanilla essence
- 1 cup almond chopped
- 1/2 tea spoon cardamom seed powder
- 2-3 tea spoons of pure ghee
Heat water in a vessel and add the green peas and let them get cooked fully.Now cool them and remove thin cover of each green pea.Removing this cover is important as it gives a smooth paste later.After removing the peels grind this boiled mutter to a very fine paste using very little water.There is one more way to remove peels of green peas. Put this hot boiled green peas in 'puran yantra'.After putting this mutter in puran yantra the peels gets separated and a thin paste is obtained. For those who do not know what is 'puran yantra' , its a vessel used to make puran for puran polis.
Now heat a non stick pan and add 2 tea spoon ghee and add the mutter paste and saute it for 3-4 mins.Then add sugar and mix it.Sugar will melt and the mixture will change colour to dark green paste. Let it get cooked for 5 mins.
Now add the milk powder, cashew nut powder and vanilla essence and mix well.Mixture will again change colour to light green and will start getting thicker.Saute it till it forms a ball.Add cardamom powder and mix it and let the mixture form a ball.
Grease the back side of a plate with ghee. Pour the cooked mixture over it and spread it over it uniformly using a greased small flat plate.Sprinkle almond shivers on it and press gently. Let it get cooled for 20 mins. Cut it into deisired shape and serve.
They remain fresh without refrigeration for 10-12 days.
