Malpua is one of my favourite desert. It is rich, sweet, sticky and so good. I made it and shared it last year, this year i decided to make another version of it, a stuffed bread malpua..It is just a bread and khoya stuffed desert, the stuffed bread malpua is fried and soaked in sugar syrup..
This version tasted so good. It almost tasted like stuffed gulab jamun. I added nuts in this, you can skip it and simply use khoya. This desert taste yummy when served warm..Hubby was just going crazy over this and gulped two of this in a min..
I used homemade khoya, For Homemade Khoya, Check out traditional version and instant version.. You can use store bought khoya as well. And also instead of using unsweetened khoya, you can use sweet khoya, in which you have to skip the sugar and add nuts alone.
