This mithai is one that will remain etched in your memory for a long time, not only due to its rich texture and intensely milky flavour but also thanks to the spicy overtones of cardamom and saffron. Pistachios enhance this pedas further with their interesting crunch.

Surprisingly, this mouth-watering Amrit Peda is also quite easy to make. You can store it at room temperature in a dry and airtight container for 4-5 days, or in the refrigerator for 8-10 days.

Make these pedas for special occassions like Raksha - Bandhan Diwali and Dassera .
