Tri-color Pedas - A sweet Independence Day!!!

Its the tri-color fever that is catching up in Blogger and I was wanting to do something with the tri-color theme. And today on random the idea of Pedas struck me and I was totally game for it. I am sure every INDIAN would have tried this milk sweet and is truly an Indian recipe and is for sure a perfect tri-color recipe to post on Independence Day. 

Linking this to Sharan's Independence Day blogroll and Swathi's Hearth & Soul
As a child this day has always struck many fond memories for me. Back in school we got tri-color jujips as a token for attending the Independence Day march past. Oh good old days :-) I wonder who came up with that idea... but back then all that I was worried about is attending school on a govt. holiday (phew..) and having the usual stuff year after year but these little sweets made it worth while :P, crazy me...

No matter where life takes us or what we do, we sure have an Indian side to us that is never going to change... So be proud to be Indian !!! and keep your head high. 
Happy Independence Day

Recipe Source ~ Show me the curry

Prep & cook time ~ 10 mins


Condensed milk - 1/2 tin
Milk powder - 1 cup
Butter/ghee - 1/2 stick
Cardamom/ Elaichi powder - 1/2 tsp
Food colors (optional)

  • In a microwave safe dish, melt the butter. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Cook in the microwave for 3 minutes, stirring very well after every minute.
  • After the 3 minutes, mix well again and leave aside for the mixture to cool down enough to handle.
  • Split the mixture into 2 other containers and add the colors (just few drops) and mix well with a spoon. Once the mixture has cooled down, grease your hands and make balls.Gently press the balls and flatten them to shape…round and flat.
