  8. Hi Sharmi, I didn't find almond powder, will it help to just roast and powder almonds for this?
    I bought cocoa powder thinking will make this for Diwali but then no almond powder so Made on Katlis...
    hope you are having a great Diwali !

  9. @Nimi : Almond powder is nothing but just powdering it raw, I've updated the recipe too. Hope u had a great Diwali ...Ours went on fine too :)

  10. Oh ok, then it's fine. Thank you ones again.

    I got sick the day before festival and so was in off mood and so could make only katlis for Diwali ( and even though i shouldn't have taken sweets, ate lots of them ;)

  11. @Nimi : I knw even I cant resist when it comes to sweets :) Take care and get well soon

  12. Ok, at last I made it... This peda is drool worthy, literally fingerlicking good... awesome!

  15. Sharmi,tis seems easy-quick sweet and marking it to my diwali usual hav a doubt!!...what milk powder should i get?..i mean any particular brand like amulya(tats the only brand i see in my nearby super market) there any other good one?

  16. @Geethu : I used everyday but you can go ahead with amulya too....

  17. Hello Sharmilee ,

  18. Hello Sharmilee ,

    Tried this yummy choco Pedas for this Diwali and it was a rocket hit :):):) Thank you so much for the recipe and couldnt believe (until tried of course ) that such a delicious sweet could be prepared so instantly and without any hassles !!!:):) simply loved this :):)

  19. Hi Sharmi, dont we have to add sugar for this peda ? Im planning to make it today.. Also can we add more nuts - Cashew , Pecan , Pista as well ?

    1. No need to add sugar...the sweetness in the biscuit is just enough for this.But if you feel its less then add little powdered sugar, and yes you can add ur fav nuts too....

  20. Hi Sharmi, should the boiled milk be cooled before adding? Or do we need to add it hot?Also, is it ok if the almonds give out little oil while grinding or care should be taken to see that the powder is not sticky?
