Years ago, Dungarji Dhoot had established Bhaiji Pedo shop at Jharia Mori. Sitaram Prajapat, who worked with him, learned this art of making trees. Then Tejpal Saini, who poured milk here, left his son Gopiram Saini to help Dungar ji Dhoot aka Bhaiji, and after Bhaiji’s death in 1985, today these two shops are being operated here on the basis of the same art taught by Bhaiji. Which is currently being run by Sunderlal Prajapat and Rakesh Saini.
that’s why it’s special
Sundarlal Prajapat and Rakesh Saini, who run Bhaiji Peda’s shop, say that the taste of their Peda is special from the commonly sold trees because they extract Mawa from the same milk. Mawa of milk, then mix less sugar in the mawa and cook it, then knead it and cook it again. Apart from this, special saffron trees are also made here. While the price of low sugar trees is Rs 360 per kg, the price of special saffron trees is Rs 400 per kg.
