I. To prepare the main peda base:
- STEP 2
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ Crumble the cottage cheese (paneer) cubes, and keep it aside.
- STEP 3
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ In a non-stick pan, add quarter spoon of Ghee (optional) and add the crumbled paneer.
- STEP 4
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ Saute until the crumbled paneer turns a little moist.
- STEP 5
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ At that point, add the sugarless condensed milk (250 Ml) to it and keep stirring until it merges well with paneer to form a thick consistency.
- STEP 6
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ Add a dash of salt in the mixture while stirring.
- STEP 7
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ In case if it doesnÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂt a ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂthickÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ base , add milk powder little by little (not the whole at once) until it forms thick.
- STEP 8
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ You may also add cocunut powder (gives nice flavor).
- STEP 9
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ Add sugar free at the end (as required) along with few drops of Rose essence.

ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ Transfer that paste to a plate and let it cool.

ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ Separate one-fourth of this base, flatten it to let it cool faster.
- STEP 13
II. To prepare the paan flavored stuffing:
- STEP 14
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ In the same non-stick pan, add 3-4 table spoons of grated beetroot and saute it with one quarter spoon of Ghee.
- STEP 15
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ When it is semi-cooked, add the separated base with beetroot and saute until it turns red.
- STEP 16
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ Add a few drops of betel leavesÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ juice (or paan extract preferably). Saute until it forms a firm base.
- STEP 17
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ You may add sugar free in case you sweeten it more.

- STEP 21
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ Try to stuff the paan flavored balls into the peda white balls and cover the white peda as one in a stuffed paratha.
