Like Rasgulla in Bengal and Mysore Pak in the South , Malpua is an evergreen hit in the northern parts of the country.

Whether it is Holi , a wedding or a party, the dessert counter would be incomplete without these warm, deep-fried and syrup-coated flour discs, which are best had with a topping of rich and spicy rabadi .

We have modified the traditional recipe ever so slightly here, to prepare it with minimal oil in a tava instead of deep-frying it; and you will be surprised to note that they are as soft and succulent as the original!

Soft as snow, it just melts in the mouth. These malpuas are just out of the world. Such easy to make steps. And made with minimal ghee. this is a must try recipe, where malpuas are not deep fried.

Soft deep fried pancakes soaked in a saffron syrup and served with rabdi. Just divine.
