Kesar Ellachi Peda Using Khoya/Mawa

My daughter is very fond of sweets. In fact, my whole family loves to have sweets. So one or the other sweet always has to be there in my fridge. When I selected khoya as my theme for the week, all in my family were very happy as they will get to eat a variety of sweets. After making two khoya and cocoa based sweets i.e. Jammu chocolate and Dhoda, I though of making sweet with another great flavor of India i e. Saffron.

Kesar ellachi peda is a very easy to make sweet that comes together completely in less than half an hour. I have made it from khoya/mawa. It can also be masher from full fat milk or milk powder. That will take a longer time, otherwise the taste remains the same.
