I had always heard about cakes that are made by Parsi or Irani bakeries but never got a chance to visit. It was around a year back when my sister brought me a classic cake from some Parsi bakery in Mumbai and that was when i was introduced to MAWA CAKE. Extremely soft and moist cake made with mawa/milk solids, flavored with cardamom and topped with cashews is something to die for. The aroma is truly exotic and is a super delightful snack option for your tea time parties.
The recipe here is adapted by Veg Recipes Of India and trust me it’s a fool proof recipe. Prefect proportions of ingredients and easy to make steps. Though the original recipe is made with whole wheat flour and i opted for all purpose flour but it also calls for a 50-50 option. So you can any day mix both the flour in half proportions. Use of cashews depends from person to person like i chose to decorate my cake with plenty of them.
