Malfatti is a steamed dumpling, usually made of spinach and cheese. Interesting, the Italian term Malfatti literally translates to ‘poorly made’, which probably refers to the odd, rustic shape of the dumplings!
Although it is quite exotic, the Spinach Malfatti is relatively easy to make. A mixture of spinach and cottage cheese held together by wheat flour are rolled into dumplings and steamed.
These dumplings are served in a quick, homemade tomato sauce, which adds to the flavour and nutrition of the Spinach Malfatti. A garnish of grated paneer contrasts with the colour of the sauce, making the dish look really attractive, while also bringing in more protein to the nutrition chart!
These mildly-spiced and healthy steamed dumplings are rich in iron , calcium , folic acid and protein , which makes it ideal to have in the early months of pregnancy.
