Mawa kesar badam peda recipe | khoya saffron peda

Mawa kesar badam peda recipe – This is a very delicious peda prepared with mawa, saffrons, almond powder and sugar. Mawa or khawa is one such basic ingredient in all varieties of peda.  
These pedas are easy to prepare and the method of preparation is almost similar to  mango mawa peda which I have posted recently. While preparing this peda the mixture is slightly thickened to get a bit harder peda which I like. The texture and taste of this peda is entirely different from the mango peda. If you buy five hundred grams of mawa, you can prepare both varieties of pedas in small quantity. Serve these pedas with crispy savoury snacks.
