MALPUA is a pancake served as dessert or a snack originating from the Indian subcontinent. MALPUA is popular in Bangladesh, Odisha, West Bengal Maharashtra and Nepal where it is served during festival along with others sweets. There are several variations of making MALPUAS. Here I am using Maida,Semolina and milk for the batter. The batter is left to stand for a few hours before being spooned into a kadhai of hot oil to form a bubbling pancake which should be crisp around the edges. The MALPUAS are then immersed in sugar syrup. MALPUA is a popular sweet to make on the Hindu religions occasion of Holi. I am sharing an easy recipe of MALPUA that can be made for any occasion. You can also served it with Rabdi or Rabri.
