KESAR MAWA PEDA





Indian festive season is in full swing, and this festive ambience tempts me so I have unleashed myself for making some delectable delicacies at home for friends and family because I personally feel that it is always good to add your personal touch by making mithai at home.




Pedas are my all-time favourite Indian Mithai, I adore the most. Offer me a plate of assorted mithai, and see first where my hand reaches out for?

Rich, soft, milky and aromatic Rajkot Na Peda always makes me happy, I could never stop at one. I could trade any western fudge for these, they will bring the same deliciousness and make my taste buds dance!
