Malpua – a delicious deep fried dessert.
Its festival time. With barely a few days left for Dussehra and soon to follow Diwali, everyone is gearing up for the celebration. And what’s a festival without sweets. Even though people have now become health conscious, sweets are something one cannot ignore during festivals.
Today, I am sharing the recipe of a sweet dish known as Malpua. Malpua can be made in a number of ways. The ingredients for the Malpua batter varies from region to region. There are several variations, using some or all of the following ingredients : maida, rava, wheat flour, milk, yoghurt etc. I am here with an easy recipe of Malpua which I learnt from Mrs. Jyoti Baliga who is a member of one of the Facebook food groups. Here goes the recipe:
1 cup refined flour (maida)
¼ cup semolina (rava)
1 cup buttermilk (chaas)
½ cup sugar (cheeni)
1 tsp cardamom powder (elaichi powder)
Clarified butter (Ghee) for frying Malpuas
- In a mixing bowl, add maida, rava, sugar, buttermilk and whisk well till the sugar is dissolved.
- Keep this aside for 2 hours.
- After two hours, add elaichi powder to the mixture and mix.
- Heat ghee in a pan.
- Pour a small ladleful of batter into hot ghee.
- Let it fry on a slow flame.
- Flip and fry on the other side as well.
- Malpuas should be evenly fried on both sides.
- Likewise, repeat with the remaining batter.
- Remove and serve hot with chilled rabdi.
