We don't know about you, but there is something about this weather that makes us crave for all things warm, sweet and decadent. After all, the top contenders for our attention are gajar ka halwa, hot chocolate, jalebis and what not. India's love affair with winter desserts is not new, there are certain desserts that are only made during this season, making us wait for one whole year to enjoy the same. Then, there are some that are made throughout the year, but their popularity skyrockets during winters. Mawa malpua is one such dessert that finds even more takers in this nippy weather. It is said malpua is one of the oldest desserts of India. It looks like a crispy pancake dipped in chashni, in this recipe by NDTV Food, you could give it a more decadent touch by adding mawa to the recipe.
