The Super market near my place barely stores 2 - 3 pkts of Unsweetened Khoya per day before i cld step n grap them thr s some one wld have taken all the pkts. Decided to make em at home and they turned out perfect and decided not to go for store bought ones.

Excess milk at home during festive season can be utilised to make Khoya / Mawa. With this khoya "n" number of sweets can be prepared. Kesar Khoya peda is one such simple to make sweet. The flavors from saffron n elaichi gives a rich n beautiful color to these cute mini pedas. 

Khoya / Mawa cab be made well in advance,refrigerated and put in for later use.

What you need for Khoya: Inspired from Indian Cuisine
1 litre - Milk

What you need for Pedas:
1 cup - Homemade Khoya / Mawa
1/4 cup - Sugar
2 tbsp - Milk, gen pinch of saffron added to this milk
1/8 tsp - Cardamom Powder
