Chhena Malpua

Malpua is a pancake served as a dessert or a snack originating from the states of Odisha and Rajastan, India. The batter for malpua varies. In this recipe I have used home made panner or chhena instead of ripe bananas or coconut as traditionally used in Odisha.
In stead of deep frying the Chhena Malpuas, I have pan fried them and lightly soaked them with saffron flavored sugar syrup and then garnished them heavily with crushed almonds, pistachios and cardamom.
