Mewa Paag Recipe | Dry Fruits Paag | Mewa Barfi with step-by-step photo and video recipe. Barfi or ladoo recipes are one of the classical Indian dessert recipes, that are prepared across the year for various reasons. Some of these sweet recipes are prepared for a specific purpose with a special set of ingredients and spices. One such hugely popular North Indian sweet recipe is the Mewa Paag recipe known for its taste, a combination of dry fruits prepared during Krishna Janmasthami.

I have posted quite a few dry fruit-based sweets and dessert recipes, but this dry fruit paag is one of the unique recipes. As I was explaining earlier this sweet recipe is typically prepared for Krishna Janmasthami or any festival with fasting involved in it. Basically, these kinds of sweets help to get more nutrients and energy in a small number of sweets. Thus, helping to focus more on the spiritual side and not on the hungriness. Having said that, I prepare these kinds of sweets randomly and store them in an air-tight container. I can simply serve it as a snack, or as a healthy dessert for any surprise guest visit. You may also plan for any festival and trust me you would pleasantly surprise your friends and family members.

Mewa Paag Recipe Furthermore, some more related and additional tips, suggestions, variants to the mewa paag recipe. Firstly, in this recipe, I have shown a basic and simple recipe prepared with sugar. Sugar is used in authentic and traditional recipes, but you may use jaggery too. Perhaps, I would post it as another recipe soon. Secondly, I would heavily recommend roasting all the dry fruits separately and using them in this recipe. It can be time-consuming, but it would result in crunchy sweetness. Perhaps, you may use store-bought roasted dry fruits for a quick turnaround. Lastly, if you face any difficulty in shaping these barfis, you may shape them like ladoo. The shape does not matter for these kinds of sweets.
