Honey Malpua

Indians love Malpua and specially people from West Bengal, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar & Jharkhand. Every state has its own speciality. I too love Malpua but I wanted to make a healthy one during the present festive season. Malpua can be with egg or without egg ie the batter and dipped in sugar syrup. In other words it’s an Indian style pancake dipped in sugar syrup. The pancake usually would be made with semolina, or All Purpose Flour, any kinds of fruits etc. Well, my healthy version has Wheat flour, banana and instead of sugar I dipped in honey. Viola! The best healthy, nutritious Malpua done in no time. Readers may tell me that how can honey has its immunity power if honey is mixed with hot water. Well, honey is good to eat and will retain its immunity power even if it’s mixed with hot water. Here is the recipe
