Malpua is a pancake made of mawa, maida and then cooked malpuas are dipped in sugar syrup. It is a rich dessert and very often served with rabdi. I love malpuas of Pushkar, Ajmer. They are so soft and yummy that i never forget to have them whenever i use to visit pushkar. I tried to make malpuas and they taste heavenly. My hubby loved it.
