Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen was our August 2013 Daring Bakers’ hostess and she challenged us to make some amazing regional Indian desserts. The Mawa Cake, the Bolinhas de Coco cookies and the Masala cookies – beautifully spiced and delicious!
I made the Mawa cake and bolinhas de coco cookies. The cake turned out fairly well, though a little burnt. The cookies were more like shortcake in texture and didn't turn out as I would have liked. This could be due to the fact that I had to use semolina flour as opposed to just semolina. I made them a little better with a cardamom glaze.
