  1. I have gone through all your recipes..it reminded me of my mother’s cooking …
    I have got one doubt with peda recipe..
    shouldn’t we add sugar?

    • Hi Anwatha, Thanks a lot for the positive response. Regarding the peda recipe, yes you can add sugar if you need. However, as described in my recipe, I have used condensed milk which has fair amount of sugar in it. Therefore, I have not added any extra sugar to it. If yo need you can add some more sugar based on your sweet tooth 🙂

  2. Hey Archana ! great recipes. The small videos which you upload are very helpful. I follow you on insta 🙂
