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!
