A bite sized appetizer for those with a sweet tooth.
For the Malpua (Sweet Indian Pancake)
  • 1 cup wholewheat flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • ¼ cup yogurt
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
For the filling
  • ½ cup baking dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  1. Mix all the ingredients for the Malpua (except the oil) and make a smooth batter from it. It should resemble pancake batter. If required, adjust the quantity of the milk to get the right consistency.
  2. Heat oil in a non-stick pan and make a large pancake from the batter (use approx 6-7 tablespoons of the batter at a time).
  3. Cook evenly till both sides are slightly brown. Do this with all the batter.
  4. Cut out 1.5 inch circles from the batter using a cutter.
  5. Now mix the chocolate and the butter and melt in the microwave for 35-40 seconds.
  6. Beat the chocolate to get a smooth glossy texture and apply ½ a teaspoon on a mini pancake. Top with another piece to close the 'sandwich'.
  7. Secure with a toothpick. Serve warm or cold.
