Holi Festival is incomplete without Mawa Gujiya in the scene. Flaky deep fried flaky dough filled with sweetened solid milk, semolina and assorted nuts. It’s a quintessential Holi dessert and to make it more special you can even add Thandai powder to the filling. I however didn’t add thandai powder, instead enjoyed it with some cold Thandai drink.

Sabudana Vada is a very popular Maharashtrian snack that is prepared with very basic 5 ingredients. It’s crunchy on the outside while being very soft and airy inside.
