Ainy Cooks

Malfua or Malpua are basically a version of pancakes but in Bohri style. I have experienced a lot of Bohri recipes back in Karachi, where people from Bohra community is living In huge number. I am fortunate enough that one of a very experienced and dedicated lady Zeenat Iqbal Hakemji shared her recipe with me, she is a seasoned cook and a housewife. You can visit her blog ZEENAT IQBALS KITCHEN for more Bohra Recipes.
