Mawa Samosa is a popular India sweet that is made during festivals like Holi and Diwali. This samosa is filled with a sweet mawa filling. The mawa filling is mixed with dry fruits & sugar.

Mawa Samosa is crispy from the outside. It is generally deep-fried in ghee but here chef Akanksha bakes it instead of deep-frying thus making it helathier.

This Mawa Samosa is delightful, guilt-free dessert.
