Mathura Peda originated from the city of Mathura. It is a dessert that is offered as ‘bhog’ to Mathura’s favourite deity, Lord Krishna. This peda is then offered as a ‘prasad’ to the devotees of Lord Krishna.
For making Mathura peda, milk is boiled for hours till it solidifies into mawa (khoya). The mawa is gently cooked in a bit of ghee till it becomes brown. The cooked mawa is then divided into tiny round balls, which are then rolled in powdered sugar or boora.
This tiny round ball is so delicious and delicate that it just melts in your mouth.
