Ciabatta Malpoa

What do you do you if you have a bunch of Ciabatta bread from Costco lying at the bottom of the refrigerator occupying valuable space? Sadly, I am the only one who took a liking to this product in its original state and I vastly overestimated my appetite for it. Luckily, my mother-in-law devised a plan: convert it to a Bengali sweet called malpoa. The results were delightful and I asked her for the recipe.

It's quite simple:

  • soak bread in milk to soften
  • fry in vegetable oil for crispness
  • dip in sugar syrup - but not too much, just enough for the sugar to seep in
  • set aside to cool

Apparently, a variant of this recipe is also known as Bombay Toast.
