Malpua is one of the popular Indian Sweet which prepared on the occasion of Holi, Diwali and on more auspicious occasions. Malpua is a fried pancake which soaked in sugar syrup and serve with rabri and nuts as a dessert. Sometimes we add crushed coconut or banana puree in this batter for more flavorful malpuas. Malpua is a famous dish during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Muslim families across India, as well as Pakistan prepare malpuas for iftar (meal to break the fast). This malpua includes maida, rawa, and khoya/ mawa (milk solids), and is deep fried to take the shape of a pancake. In some recipes, malpuas are dipped in sugar syrup before serving.
Last month I started new group “Sweet Fantasy Club” with my co-bloggers and so we decided to choose Malpua as an Indian Sweets for November series. I wanna thanks to all my lovely co-bloggers who support me a lot for encouraging towards this group. For more detail about this group checkout our page “http://www.simplytadka.com/p/sweet-fant.html”
