About This Recipe

Kesari Malai Peda is a popular Indian sweet that is specially made during Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali, or other Hindu festivals. This Indian dessert uses milk solids and has a soft, creamy taste and a tender texture.  

It can be flavoured with cardamom powder and saffron, which adds a delicious flavour to the Pedas. Called Indian cream fudge, I always make this sweet for Diwali and it has always been a hit among people.  

You can also add some whole dry fruits on top such as Badam or Kaju, to make it look even more appealing. I sometimes also make Chocolate Peda, which is kiddo’s other favourite.   

In fact, It is super easy to make Kesari Malai Peda from scratch and it has been years since I have bought ready-made ones. When I make sweets at home, I can rest assured of its quality and the kind of ingredients that I use, hence, Malai Peda is no exception for me. 

However, I would like to suggest you few recipes from my blog
