Jaggery has a rich taste that lingers in the palate for a while. Jaggery Malpua is a delicious but quick dessert characterised by this luxuriant flavour, speckled with exciting tinges of fennel.

These melt-in-the-mouth whole wheat flour malpuas should ideally be served right off the tava, garnished with cardamom powder and pistachios, or with a topping of creamy rabdi .

      Tasty malpuas with a lovely sweet taste of jaggery. Glad to see sugar replaced with jaggery and plain flour with whole wheat flour.
