Let’s talk about the ingredients for Chocolate Peda recipe

Mawa or khoya is a very commonly used ingredient for the dessert recipes or sweet recipes. Many traditional recipes are prepared using mawa such as gujiya etc. Whenever I have surplus milk, I make khoya with it and use the khoya for making peda, ladoo, etc. This recipe for chocolate peda also uses mawa/khoya as the base. Let’s have a look at the ingredients required to make chocolate peda:

Mawa/Khoya: I would strongly recommend using homemade khoya for the sweet recipes. There is too much adulteration in the mawa that is available with the mithai walas etc.

Cocoa Powder: The chocolate peda gets its chocolate flavor from the cocoa powder. For any chocolate dessert, where the cocoa powder is used it is very important to use the best quality of the cocoa powder. I have used the Hershey cocoa powder and was happy with the chocolate flavor it gave.

Sugar: Powdered sugar should be used. The quantity can be adjusted as per taste.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
