Malai peda fat bombs

Peda is an Indian sweet usually prepared in thick, semi-soft pieces. They are often served as ‘prasadam’ in religious services. Prasadam- literally means a gracious gift. It denotes anything, typically an edible food,  that is first offered to a deity, saint, Perfect Master or an avatar, and then distributed in His or Her name to their followers or others as a good sign.

Pedas originated in the city of Mathura in present-day Uttar Pradesh, India.  The main ingredients are khoa(evaporated milk),  sugar and traditional flavorings, including cardamom seeds, pistachio nuts and saffron. The colour varies from a creamy white to a caramel colour.

To make these delicious pedas Keto-friendly, you just need few ingredients. These can be eaten as fat bombs though they are also packed with protein and are to be refrigerated. They will be semi-soft and little crumbly when made, and firm when refrigerated. You can have them as soon as you make them or later. However you like them, they are milky in taste and give a rich flavour only in a single bite.
