Today I am trying to make Penda, Indian sweetmeats.
One thing I will tell you, when the recipe says ghee, use ghee and when the recipe says Klim powder do not and I repeat do not use Cremora powder, stick to the Klim – TRUST ME.
3 cups Klim powder
½ tsp elatchi powder
½ cup dessert cream
2 tbsp. condense milk
1 tsp rose-water
3 cups icing sugar
1 tsp ghee
Mix the klim powder, icing sugar and elatchi powder in a bowl.
Add the dessert cream, condense milk, rose-water and ghee into the powder mixture.
Using your hand, knead and bring the mixture together.
When the mixture comes together, break off small pieces, roll into a ball and decorate as you like. I popped my balls into small paper cup holders and placed a small silver ball in the center.
I also took the ball and placed in a fondant mould plunger to get desired shapes, dusted it with silver powder and also placed a small silver ball in the center.
The way you decorate it, is up to you, to more colorful and more funky, the combinations are all up to you.
