Once it starts leaving the sides of the pan as shown below, remove from heat and keep stirring for a few seconds.

When the mixture is warm, grease your fingers with ghee and make 10 or 12 equal smooth balls from the mixture.

Make a dent/impression with your thumb and fill pistachio in it. As it cools it will harden. That's it. Chocolate peda is ready.

It tastes best the next day. It is be a little sticky, if you taste it immediately after preparing. Give it some time (atleast 3-4 hours) for it to set. Once set, it tastes great. It is more like a chocolate fudge.

Note - If you over cook the mixture, the peda will turn hard and develop cracks. You can add a little milk and cook to soften it.

If you are unable to make balls, cook it for a few more minutes.

Storage and Shelf life - Stays good for a day or two at room temperature and for a week in the refrigerator. If stored in refrigerator, bring it to room temperature before serving the pedas.
