Mouthwatering Monday – Milk Peda

 

Milk Peda
Milk Peda for Rakhi

I love Pedas…. actually I love all the sweets (except those made with besan) 😐 Yumm….

Yesterday was Rakhi (Rakshabandhan), a festival where a sister ties a Rakhi, bond of love, to her brother’s wrist. I don’t like the notion that Rakhis are for protection, but I rather think, that they are a gesture of love between siblings. So, in my household, not only Tisha ties Rakhi to her Brothers, Otu & Renne’s hand, but boys too tie a Rakhi to Tisha’s wrist. More power to Love. ❀

I cherish these moments.
