We are cooking up a treat.
It will be served shortly...
Angoori Petha is a variation of the popular Agra ka petha and is a tempting Sweet Indian dessert.
White pumpkin (peeled and deseeded) :- 2 kg
Sugar :- 3 cups
Slaked lemon :- ¼ tsp
Desiccated coconut :- 1 cup
Yellow food colour :- few drops
Thick bottomed pan
Scoop out balls from the pumpkin using a melon scoop and prick each one using a fork.
Rub the slaked lemon over the balls and set aside for five minutes.
Thoroughly wash and drain these balls. Set aside.
In a thick bottomed pan, mix the yellow food colour and sugar with two cups of water. Allow this mixture to boil.
Remove any impurities if they exist with a slotted spatula.
Drop the balls in this mixture and cook over high heat for 15 minutes.
Switch off the heat and keep aside to cool down completely.
Take out the petha balls from the sugar syrup and then roll them in desiccated coconut.
Sprinkle some saffron strands on top and serve chilled.
