Ganesh Chaturthi is a ten-day Hindu festival mainly celebrated in Maharashtra. Ten days celebration of the birthday of elephant headed God Ganesha.
God Ganesha is known as the lord of art and science and the God of wisdom. He is known by 108 different names. Most popularly known as Vinayaka and Ganapati.
Lord Ganesha is considered the God of beginnings. So people worship God Ganesha before every rituals and ceremonies.
Modak and laddu are the favourite sweets of Lord Ganesh.
Our this week’s 106th #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is Ganesh Chaturthi special. My contribution is this gulkand stuffed khoya or mawa paneer laddu.
I have used homemade mawa or khoya and paneer in it. These delicious and melt in mouth laddus are very easy to make.
Paneer or cottage cheese – 1 & 1/2 cup crumbled
Khoya or mawa – 1 cup
Sugar – 5 tablespoon or to taste
Cardamom powder – 1 teaspoon
Desiccated coconut – 4 tablespoon
Saffron – a small pinch
Gulkand or rose petal jam – as require
In a food processor or mixer grinder grind paneer, khoya, sugar, desiccated coconut, cardamom powder and saffron altogether.
Make the mixture smooth. Taste and add little more sugar if require.
Pour the mixture into a nonstick or heavy bottom pan. Cook on low flame. Stir continuously.
Cook until the consistency becomes like a dough and leaves the sides. Don’t make it too dry.
Remove from heat.
Let the mixture cool down.
Make small balls. Flatten with your palm. Place little gulkand at the middle.
Bring together all the sides and make a round ball again.
Make all the balls or laddu like this.
Serve immediately or keep in refrigerator.
Enjoy the heavenly taste.
