Hot malpuas are irresistible, whether had plain or with a topping of cold rabadi . Try making this delightful treat at home itself, and with a slight twist.

In this version, I have avoided deep-frying the malpuas and cooked them with minimal ghee in a frying pan. They turn out as soft as ever.

You can also try other traditional sweet treats like Jalebi or Gulab Jamun .

   Not really. You have to dip malpuas in sugar syrup after frying.

I love Indian sweets and malpuas is one of my favorite dessert. Soft shallow fry pancakes soaked in a saffron syrup and served with rabdi. Just divine.
