Kesar peda is a easy recipe. we can make in 10 to 20 minutes if we have kova. My son likes peda very much. Whenever we go to Bangalore we used to buy Nandini Pedas. I made kesar peda a long time back. I reserved to post for new year 2015. I have arranged in adyar ananda bhavan box for photo session. My son asked me when did you buy? I was really happy. Let us see how to make peda.
