About BabuSingh Thakur Pedha

Dharwad Pedha traces its historical origin to Thakur family which migrated from Unnao in Uttar Pradesh to Dharwad after the dreaded plague broke out there sometime in early 19th Century. With meager funds, Shri. RamRatan Singh Thakur (first generation sweet maker) started making 'Pedhas' and selling them and gradually, it started becoming popular. Shri RamRatan Singh Thakur's grandson, Shri. Babu Singh Thakur built the reputation of the 'Pedha' with a missionary zeal. With no time, the 'Pedha' became so popular that local people of Dharwad began identifying it by his name and as 'Line Bazar Pedha' (the name of the street on which the shop is located).The business is now carried out by brothers Umesh Singh Thakur and Deepak Singh Thakur.Along with the famous Pedha there has been an addition of bakery items on the products list of Babusingh Thakur Pedha.
