Savor the Taste of India's Authentic Milk Sweet  Kesar Peda

Kesar peda is the part of every festival celebration in India !

Prep Time: 15 Min

Cook Time: 30 Min


300 grams - Khoya(Mawa), 4 tbsp - Sugar 12-15 Saffron strands (Kesar) 2 tbsp - Milk 1/4 tbsp Cardamom powder (Elaichi) 1 tbsp Chopped Almonds/ Pistachios  1/2 tsp - Ghee

Take a small pan and warm the milk without boiling it. Let the saffron soak for a while and then use it.

Step 1

In a non-stick pan, put crumbled khoya(mawa) and sugar while stirring continuously for 6-7 minutes on low heat. Initially, the khoya will melt, then thicken again.

Step 2

Once the khoya thickens, add cardamom powder and saffron milk. Cook until it reaches a sticky dough-like consistency and starts to separate from the pan's sides.

Step 3

Turn off the heat and let the peda mixture cool. Once cool, grease your hands with ghee, knead lightly to remove lumps, and add a bit of ghee for a shiny texture.

Step 4

Shape the peda mixture into small balls, create a dent in the center, add chopped dry fruits, and let the kesar peda cool before serving.
