Suggestions:

  • If you’ll add boora in hot mawa then mixture can get thin in consistency and it might get difficult in making peda. If this happens then place the mixture in refrigerator and use it day after for making pedas.
  • If you add boora in too cooled mawa then the mawa-boora mixture can turn dry and may scatter. This will also make it difficult in making pedas. If this happens add 1/2-1 tsp hot milk and mix well. Now you can use this mixture for making peda.
