Kesar Malai Peda (Sweet milk balls with Saffron)

When you are home  away from home you miss so many things. But in this electronic age, you can google anything and found everything. I used to love peda when I was young and was in India. Since last few days I was craving to eat something sweet after diner, although I am not much in to sweets but sometimes I like to nibble something. I was thinking to make something yummy. I was just staring in the fridge what to use and what to make, I saw half used Ricotta Cheese container and I thought Let's make Peda. And here we go after 45 minutes of labor I have Kesar Malai Peda for you and me too.

16 oz. Ricotta cheese ( I always buy Part Skim so I use that)
1/4 cup Sugar (or depend upon your sweet tooth)
few strings of saffron
cardamom powder
Almonds to garnish

Heat a non stick pan, add Ricotta in it.
Cook on low flame till all the water is gone and it becomes one solid lump.
Add sugar, saffron and cardamom powder and again cook it.
Don't forget to mix it constantly , you need a strong hand for this.
Cook it till sugar dissolves and mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan,
Transfer it in to dish and wait till it cools down little. Apply ghee on your hands and make balls out of it and put your thumb in the middle and make space for almonds.
Serve and enjoy the yummy sweet balls.
