Diwali Sweets, Sweets

DHARWAD PEDA

Dharwad Peda is a sweet unique to the town of Dharwad in Karnataka state. It was originally started by the Thakur family who had migrated from Unnao in Uttar Pradesh and stared business here. Line Bazar Peda is one of the famous sweets in Dharwad..I have earliest memories of my father bringing these home and I used to love it each time. He had a Kannadiga friend who when visited  his native place would pass on this to him. Never did I imagine that I would be settling in Karnataka one day  and be a total foodie and a passionate blogger back then. All my childhood memories are associated with food, making them and sharing with relatives. In fact we all have such wonderful memories to share.

Coming to the recipe, I am on the look out of new as well as traditional sweets and snacks for Diwali and this is one such authentic recipe. This involves very less ingredients practically  three and in a matter of minutes but with constant and careful stirring, this delicious recipe was made. My daughter relished on this and I was satisfied very much. There are many variations in this, some make with crumbled paneer, some with condensed milk, but this is a fool proof perfect recipe anyone can try on.The fry pan used here my Nirlep selec+ fry pan and it made the work easier by not sticking to the pan and the fear of burning was also not there. But with constant attention while stirring, this can be made with ease and can make you an expert in creating desserts. There are a few recipes which I have always wanted to try but was reluctant somehow. This is one of such sweets and I totally enjoyed the making of this delectable dessert.
