3.Pour 2 tbsp of milk in the golden brown mawa and cook till the milk dries out completely. Later, turn off the flame and thoroughly mix tagar and crushed green cardamom in the warm roasted mawa. Bind the desired size peda from the mixture and coat each of them evenly with the tagar. Place them on a plate, mathura peda are ready,
4.Serve these luscious mathura peda right away or refrigerate them before serving.
If you are preparing the peda with mawa made out of cow’s milk then there is no need to add milk and ghee in it while roasting as they will become golden brown naturally but if you are preparing the peda with mawa made out of buffalo’s milk then there is need to add milk and ghee to make it golden brown.
Make sure to roast the mawa by stirring constantly on low flame otherwise the mawa will burn and the peda will neither look good nor taste good.
