kesar peda is a rich Indian sweet which is often enjoyed at festivals across the country. Learn how to make kesar mawa peda.

Instant kesar peda has a characteristic opulence about it, with the dominant flavours of saffron and cardamom lacing the intense richness of mava. By using readymade mava we have brought down the cooking time required to make this traditional mithai. You still have to plan ahead when you want to prepare this, as it requires a day’s cooling.

To make kesar peda, combine the saffron and milk in a small bowl, mix very well and keep aside. Heat the mava in a broad non-stick pan and cook on a medium flame for 7 to 8 minutes, while stirring continuously. Add the sugar, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring continuously. Transfer the mixture into a thali and spread it evenly. Cover it with a lid and keep aside for a day. Crumble the mava mixture, add the cardamom powder and saffron-milk mixture and mix very well. Divide the mixture into 16 equal portions and shape each portion into a round flat 376 mm. (1½”) diameter circle. Serve or store kesar peda in an air-tight container and refrigerate.

After being allowed to cool for a day, the mixture appears to be quite hard, but once you crumble it, you will get the required quick and easy peda texture. You can prepare and store the Kesar Pedas in the fridge in an airtight container, for a week.

Tips for kesar peda. 1. Crumble the mawa well before use so as to get a uniform mixture. 2. If you don’t have powdered sugar, grind the table sugar in a mixer and sieve it before use. 3. Store them refrigerated and have within 2 to 3 days.

You can also try your hand at other saffron based treats like the Kesar Sandesh Bhog, Kesar Malai Kulfi and Kesari Milk.

Hi just wanted to ask if this can be made with malai collected from milk at home or any other recipe where I can use the malai..

Tarla Dalal    No this recipe cannot be made using malai collected from milk. If you wish you can make mawa at home. https://www.tarladalal.com/Khoya-Or-Mawa-How-To-Make-Khoya-2003r With malai, you can make Malai Mutter https://www.tarladalal.com/Malai-Mutter-41256r

Do we need to keep the mixture for a day Or hrs ?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Raminder, You have to allow the mixture to cool for a day so that it appears quite hard and after crumbling it, you will get the required peda texture.
