Ramadan is a month of fasting, peace and prayers.
Bringing sweet dishes to our tables every day at iftar is somewhat obligatory.
Many families make their own sweet dishes but there are some sweets that have a certain charm of being bought from the local markets. It's a taste that we crave and especially when it comes only once a year.
It may thoroughly surprise you that I had never in my life eaten a malpua. It was something that my dad would bring for my mom. It was maybe the bright orange color or something that didn't feel right for me to even taste.
Until my bhendi bazaarian husband who forced me to eat the malpua at Shalimar. It is a shining yellow colored pancake kind of a recipe. I call this the Muslim version of the pancake. It's rolled with nuts and cream in it.
And you will be eating more than one, once you have tasted it.
There is a special stall added to the Shalimar Sweets only during the Ramadan for malpua. They make 1500 to 1800 malpua a day for the whole of this merciful month. The gigantic numbers show their rate of success. They have other branches all around India.
They also make about a thousand of Rabadi and a more thousand of firni on a daily basis which is a sold out every day.
The queue is long but the amazing aroma helps you wait for your turn.
Rabadi is a condensed milk based sweet. It consists of sugar, spices, and nuts to flavor it. Cooked on a low flame for a long time and later chilled and served.
Firni is a combination of boiled rice, milk and sugar. Flavored with cardamom, almonds, and saffron.
