Start by combining the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Continue beating until it becomes creamy.

Mix the mawa and cream together. Beat for about a minute.

Mix the egg into the flour. Then, add half the flour to the egg batter. Fold it in with a spatula.

* Combine the milk with the Thandai spiced syrup, which should be very thick.

* Add the remaining flour to the bowl and fold in.

Mix all ingredients until you have a smooth, lump-free batter.

* Pour the batter into a baking dish and bake for 45-50 min.

By inserting a toothpick into the middle of the cake, you can verify that it has been baked correctly.

* Allow the cake to cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes, then invert it on a wire rack.


* Combine the chilled cream and rose syrup until you achieve stiff peaks

Use a spatula to spread a large amount of cream on the first layer. Sandwich it with the second layer. You can decorate the entire cake with nuts or roses, or you can cover it with cream.
