Malpua-Sweet Indian Crepes #BreadBakers

Traditional foods are always close to my heart. I grew up, eating these yummy treats. But, those days (about 20 years back), all ingredients were not easily available. So, we use to get it only on Specific festivals. My mom has to do the preparation and get the ingredients from a week before.

Traditionally these crepes, are fried. They too taste yum... But, these days, my inner self-don't allow me to eat fried food anymore. So, I found out a way, to enjoy these delicious crepes, without a guilt.

#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely bread by following our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated after each event on the #BreadBakers home page.
We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. If you are a food blogger and would like to join us, just send Stacy an email with your blog URL to

These are so beautiful! I love the color. The ghee sounds like the perfect answer with the nonstick pan.

Making malpuas for a Holi theme... may just try your version as I don't want to fry them. Adding banana makes its more fluffier.Love your recipe.
These do look like a special treat indeed!
