India: Mawa Cake (7/10)


    Some of the most popular tastes in Indian sweets include cardamom, rose, and saffron. They aren’t commonly utilized in cakes or pastries. Mawa Cake, on the other hand, is a cake that incorporates these tastes and is quite famous in India. This cake is extremely popular in Mumbai and Pune’s Parsi and Iranian bakeries and cafés.

    Mawa cakes are milk-based cakes studded with cardamom and nuts such as almonds or cashews. Mawa is hardened milk made by gently boiling milk until all of the liquid has evaporated. This cake is notably popular in Mumbai, where it was served at the now-defunct Irani cafés that once dotted the city. Those cafes may have succumbed to the new fast food chains and new age eateries, but their cakes remain one of Mumbai’s favorite pleasures.
