Pedha is very commonly used and easily available type of indian sweet. As it can be made instantly and available easily at sweets shops , it's used on almost every celebration ,occasion ,festivals . There are many versions of this desert and with extra ingredient new falvour of pedhas can be made. Like add coco powder for making chocolate pedhas and add gulkand (Made up of rose petals) for making gulkand  pedhas.
I have posted here simple home made pedhas , instead of making paneer (Cottage cheese) ready made paneer can also be used in this recipe . But for mouth watering pedhas prefer using home made paneer.
