Filter Coffee Choco Peda

Filter Coffee Choco Peda
Tomorrow is Diwali and I wanted to make a sweet with coffee. I have so many coffee loving friends and I thought I must give this as a part of my Diwali sweets. “Filter Coffee Choco Peda” is a quick and easy microwave peda made out of milk powder, condensed milk, first degree filter coffee decoction, Cocoa powder. This is like any other regular microwave peda but with coffee dominating the taste.


I just took the microwave peda preparation from youtube. I referred to few videos and tried the steps mentioned in the post. Since the dish is dominated with coffee flavor, I mixed 2 varieties of coffee powder (MogaNad & Corona) with 50% each.  
You may use any regular degree coffee but make sure you are using the first degree filter coffee decoction only.. The second and third degree does not give the actual taste. Prefer to choose a coffee which has full body, citrus acidity the brew has floral aroma & malt like overtone. You can mix up with black coffee powder too. The best choice is to make 50 - 50 of malt and black coffee based coffee powders. However if you do not have these flavors, just go with your regular filter coffee. Its simply amazing with any filter coffee variety.

The coffee powder is sponsored by “Deccan Coffee“ and they are available online. I have provided the details below.

Some details about the coffee flavor as extracted from the company website:
Moganad
DELICATE + FRUITY & TOFFEE
A certified Rain Forest grown & UTZ alliance coffee from Moganad estate, Shevaroy Hills. The estate is ( believe us or not ) in the midst of an actual rain forest. Bio organic farmed, the control with which the coffee is grown mirrors in the cup when brewed. Balanced and clean, its going to be a field day for all black coffee lover.
Corona
FULL BODY + FLORAL & MALT
Our rendition of the sun when it comes to coffee. This offering is a Honey Processed Arabica which will definitely brighten your day. With full body, citrus acidity the brew has floral aroma & malt like overtone. The dark medium roast is suitable for espresso devotees and goes amazingly well with a dash of milk.
Mix of these two flavors were perfect for "Filter Coffee Choco Peda"

Notes

è End of 2 minutes is the right time to check the taste and adjust.

è Do not microwave when you find it hard to stir and mix. (Eg: after 4 minutes if you find hard to stir do not microwave more).

è Microwave time varies based on quantity.

è Filter coffee is the best. I had tried instant coffee, they get thickened very faster and becomes harder to roll. May be I skipped to add more water.

è For best taste use only first degree filter coffee.
