furthermore, some vital tips and suggestions for a perfect kesar milk peda recipe. firstly, i have used condensed milk or milkmaid which already have sugar content in it. alternatively, use store bought evaporated milk to control the sugar or sweet level. secondly, always grease your hand with ghee before shaping peda. ghee would help to bring nice texture to kesar peda recipe. lastly, start shaping the peda when the milk solid is still warm. otherwise, once it is cooled down it would be difficult to shape them.
