I love Mawa Cakes, they are the perfect blend of British and Indian if you ask me. And this Thandai Mawa Cake is just the version you need this Holi.
This Thandai Mawa Cake is perfect Cake for your Holi Party or a great dessert for your Holi lunch table. And it is so easy to make, total win-win.
Holi is always a time for indulgence for me. As a child I absolutely hated Holi, I guess most of us who grew up in the North struggling with being forced to play felt the same. But as I grew up, I started making peace with the festival. Starting to understand how to field those uncles away and enjoy with my group of friends. To be fair it could also be because I discovered Bhang, it is a different matter I can’t do it anymore as it messes with my head.
As I started cooking I also discovered so many foods I could cook for Holi. So many flavours I could play around with to create new dishes. And this Thandai Mawa Cake is a result of combining two of my favourite things. Holi Thandai and Mumbai Mawa Cake, and they blend absolutely beautifully. I am not exaggerating but this might be the BEST version of Mawa Cake I have eaten.
