Malpua (Vegan, Oil Free & Sugar Free)

“Holi”, the Festival of Colours fell over the past weekend. The advantage of having a holiday means being able to make something traditional for my little ones to celebrate and introduce them to the much-loved festival food that I and my better half grew up eating! “Malpua” are pancakes usually made with white flour and semolina and deep-fried before dunking into a thick sugar syrup. These delicious pancakes are made in many different ways often with heaps of dairy and sugar. This lighter take, on the traditional deep-fried “Malpua” full of clarified butter and milk solids eliminates all the oil and dairy while using wholemeal flour. Another good thing, about this recipe is not having to make a sugar syrup to dunk the pancakes and, replacing them with a lighter maple or agave syrup. I ate mine plain but, my little ones aren’t about to let go of the syrup jar any time soon ๐Ÿ˜‹
