A traditional Indian mithai, that is synonymous with the Indian cuisine is the humble peda. It is by far the oldest traditional sweet in our country dating back for centuries.Made differently in different parts of the country, each region has its own speciality.
Often made during festivals or special occasions, pedas are sold all round the year at all sweet meat stores.
A classic peda is made using mawa and sugar that is flavoured with saffron and cardamom finished off with some nuts. Needless to say the addition of ghee makes the peda It is just as easy as it can get, that you can whip up in your own kitchen instead of running to the mithaiwala.
