Malpuda: Indian Ricotta Pancakes
Ever tried making an Indian dessert? These little ricotta pancakes (known as Malpuda) are soaked in syrup, then eaten plain or with a condensed milk reduction called Rabri and garnished with chopped pistachios.
One of my favorite Indian desserts is Malpuda with Rabdi. When I was a kid living in India, I always wanted to bake cakes for desserts. That was a challenge because we didn’t have an oven. My mom used to borrow an old-fashioned baking contraption from a friend that involved a bundt pan with a a little detachable compartment for sand at the bottom.
