A SWEET LAMP FOR DIWAALI

Sarva mangala maangalye shive sarvaartha saadhike
sharanye tryambake gaurii naaraayani namostute.

Meaning:
Salutations to the consort of Sri Lakhmi Devi, who is all-auspicious, who is the mastress of all, who blesses devotees succeed in their efforts and who is the refuge of all.





May the glow of lamps fill your life with newer joys.. and the year ahead brings good fortune, happiness and good times to cherish forever.
wish you a happy diwaali.....



Follow the recipe:

1 cup Condensed milk(sweetened)
1.5 cup Milk powder
2tbs Milk
2tbs Sugar
8 Strawberries( make it past)
10 Pistachios(shredded)

Take the condensed milk,condensed milk, strawberries past, sugar, milk into a deep microwave container and mix well together.

Microwave for 2 or 3 minutes.


Take out from the microwave and stir well. Again micro wave for 3 minutes. Every minute stir well.

By this time, you mixture should have started to thicken and come off the sides.

At this stage,again you have to put in microwave for 20 seconds (because we need thick constancy then normal pedha).

Let the dough become luke warm.



Take the small lemon sized dough and shape it into ball. And push your thumb into the center of the ball to make bowl shape.


In one side press this bowl shaped dough with two fingers.

Do the same process for remaining dough.


For white thread:

Now take one 1sp condensed milk and 1.5 milk powder mix together and keep it in microwave for one minute and shape this dough like thread.


Put this thread shaped dough in that prepared lamps. And spread some shredded pistachios in each lamp.
