Satiate Sweet Cravings With This Honey Malpua Recipe


Malpua is like a pancake which is an Indian dessert. It is said that Malpua is the oldest desserts in India. It is usually combined with Rabri, which is a very famous Indian sweet. People generally prefer Malpua in winters as it tastes better when hot.

Generally, it is made with maida, but since people prefer healthier sweets these days, it is prepared using wheat flour.

Traditionally, Malpua is deep-fried in ghee and then dipped in sugar syrup. But, the healthier version of this Popular Dessert Recipe can also be shallow fried. Malpuas are known to be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, which will melt in your mouth just a minute.

Since the Honey Malpua that we will be preparing does not contain maida, it can be healthy. Also, if you do not want it to be too sweet, you may lessen the quantity of sugar, as the bananas are already sweet.
