Microwave Kaju Peda

U know wat, One cashew tree produces between 200 and 300 cashew nuts in a year.The cashew nut is a popular snack, and its rich flavor means that it is often eaten on its own, lightly salted or sugared.Cashews are good body builder..Cashew has no cholesterol,they helps maintain healthy gums and teeth also an energizing food. Cashew contains healthy monounsaturated fat that promotes good cardio-vascular health, because mono unsaturated fats reduce high triglyceride levels which are associated with increased risk for heart disease and they are rich in copper and magnesium. Cashew is rich in antioxidants that help in the elimination of free radicals that may cause some cancer.Cashews spoil quickly at room temperature and should be refrigerated. If refrigerated in a tightly sealed container, they will keep for six months or up to a year if frozen.Here is a microwave version of making peda using cashew powder, milk powder and sugar without butter r ghee, this yummy peda needs just 2 minutes to prepare in Microwave and they tastes really delicious...



1cup Cashew powder
1/2cup Milk powder
2tsp Water
3/4cup Sugar
Few pistachios (garnishing)

Take a wide microwave bowl...add the cashew powder, milk powder, water and sugar together and mix with a spatula, microwave for 2 minutes in high, stir in between..Keep aside and let it cool..

Now it will looks like soft chappathi dough, roll r shape them as u desire..Garnish the pistachio..

Hello Priya, I like your recipes.
Is it 2 tsp or TBSP of water?. I tried it & parts of it were burnt. Help.

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

Lucky, i used 2tsp of water only, did they get burned within 2minutes?? pls check how long u kept them..if its tooks only 2minutes to get burned so, keep ur cooking time in medium heat..hope this helps..
