Malpuas are rich, soft filigreed pancakes. The pancake (malpua) batter can be sweetened as in this recipe or the fried malpuas can be soaked in a saffron flavoured syrup. Udaipur and Pushkar are famous for their scrumptious atte ka malpuas. Coarsely ground wheat flour is used in this recipe as it helps to make crisper malpuas. These malpuas are a special feature at festivities and are always prepared for Teej and Hariali Umavas as a sacred offering to please the gods and goddesses.
