Shahi Mawa Bags Recipe

Shahi Mawa bags are an interesting creation of cooksafari. It is a dry dessert that can be served in any occasion. I prepare it for Holi and Diwali feast, as my kids and their friends love this sweet.

It is a wrap, which is filled with a delicious stuffing and is dipped into sugar syrup.

Wrap is prepared with refined flour. Process of making of dough is important for a crisp wrap. A good amount of oil is added to the flour and hard dough is prepared. This dough should keep in for rest for a better result.

Stuffing is prepared with coagulated milk (mawa) and coconut. Finely chopped dry fruits are added to enrich taste. For sweetening, castor sugar is added. To add flavour cardamom powder is added to this. Dough is rolled into thin squares and is stuffed with the prepared stuffing. Now these are deep fried in hot oil on low flame.Finally one string thread sugar is prepared and the fried wrap is dipped into this.

Give a try to this recipe, trust me you will not regret
