Mathura ke Peda is the delicacy of Mathura, a very popular and well known place of Uttar Pradesh State of India. These peda are made up of khoya (dried evaporated milk), mixed together with sugar, cardamom and ghee.

A few drops of Kewra essence / Rose essenceoptional
Take a heavy bottom wok because khoya/mava intends to stick at the bottom. Place it over medium low flame and melt the ghee.
Add khoya to the wok and saute for about 12 to 15 minutes till khoya turns into brown color. Stir it continuously to avoid burn at the bottom.
When khoya turns brown, switch off the flame and keep it aside for cooling down slightly (enough to handle with bare hands).
Now add sugar, cardamom powder and kewra essence in the mixture. Mix it well or rub the mixture with hands to combine it well.
Now make lemon size balls of this mixture and give them any shape you like.
Let them air dry for 1 to 2 hours to become hard.
