Get yourself some pedha for the sweet tooth
Going to Uttar Pradesh and not eating pedha is a crime to be honest. This form of sweet itself originated in Mathura situated in the state. The sugary goodness is purely made out of milk and it just melts in your mouth as you chew on it. If you are going to Uttar Pradesh and do buy some boxes, don’t forget to send me one.
