Mawa Tikki is a North India sweets made up of mawa based dough stuffed with dry fruits and deep fry this dumpling till golden brown and soaked in sugar syrup and then serve Hot.

This is so easy, that I love making it and it comes out so beautifully. You all will love the crispness, richness and sweetness in the rich texture of the Tikki. You can make mawa at home also but in order to save time I used the ready-made mawa that I bought from the store.

I know that everyone is busy in making Gujia but I would also suggest you take out some mawa from your Gujia and try this awesome and fantastic sweet this HOLI at your home…
