Mawa cake – is an ‘Indianised’ dessert native to the Iranian community. It is a rich, dense and moist cake that has long been the front face of Parsi dessert cuisine.

The star ingredient of the dish is mawa or fresh khoya, which is basically reduced and dried whole milk. Mawa, or khoya, is used in many Indian desserts and mithai preparations to borrow its caramelised, milky flavour. Parsi mawa cake is popularly eaten as a tea-time snack or as a post-meal dessert.

To suit pan-Indian sensibilities, we tweaked the cake recipe to make it healthier by replacing refined all-purpose flour with whole wheat. This version of cake doesn’t even contain eggs.
