Mango mawa peda recipe - Mango khawa peda recipe

Mango mawa peda in a serving plate
Mango mawa peda recipe - Mango mawa peda is a delicious, melt in mouth and easy to prepare sweet which is available in all sweet (mithai) shops in India. It is made with only three ingredients. Mawa is also known as khawa or khoya and it is used in almost all varieties of peda and halwa. Peda is one such sweet which is distributed and relished during Diwali festival and other special occasions. 

In all varieties of peda, mawa remains the main ingredient and for variations, mango pulp, saffron, cashew nut or almond is added to get the desired flavor and taste. I know this is an off season for mangoes, so getting fresh mango pulp is a bit difficult. I have used peeled frozen alphonso mango pieces which I had stored in my refrigerator during the mango season.

I Made the pulp by using mixer and the flavor was as fresh as taaza mango. If you are making this mango mawa peda during off mango season, you can also use canned mango pulp. When you are using it, reduce the quantity of sugar as the canned pulp already contains lots of sugar. The texture of peda depends upon how much thick the mixture you make. If you would like to have bit harder peda than this soft peda, you can thicken the mixture more than I have thickened.
