    8. Chop or grate chocolate, and place it in a small pan.
    9. Place pan over the top of another pan in which there is some water.
    10. Put both to heat, so that the water simmers and slowly melts the chocolate.

    12. Poke each peda into a toothpick, and dip peda halfway into chocolate.
    13. Turn and allow to dry over a sheet of butter paper.
