Janmashtami is around the corner. So our this week’s #Foodiemonday #bloghop theme is Janmashtami special. My contribution is a lip-smacking sweet dish malpua.

Malpua is everyone’s favourite in my home. Its basically a deep fried pancake. These are fried till the edges becomes crisp then soaked in sugar syrup and garnished with pistachios and served warm with rabri or thickened milk.

Malpua is an Indian sweet dish.  There are many variations of this sweet based on the region it is prepared.

It is served as a dessert or a snack and very popular in India and Bangladesh.

In West Bengal , Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra its made for the festival like Sankranti and Holi. In Orissa it is served as the prasad of Lord Jagannath.

Malpua is prepared in every Bengali homes. To make this lip-smacking dish you need only flour, milk, Semolina/suji, sugar, water and cardamom powder.

I am sharing my mom’s recipe. Soft in the middle and crisp outside yummy malpua.

Recipe 


All purpose flour/maida – 1 cup

Milk powder – 1/2 cup

Semolina/suji – 2 tablespoon

Atta or wholewheat flour  – 1/4 cup

baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon

Cardamom powder – 1/2 teaspoon

milk – 2 cup

For sugar syrup

Sugar – 1 cup

Water – 1 cup

Cardamom powder – 1/4 teaspoon
Oil or ghee/clarified butter for frying

Method 


In a large bowl mix all purpose flour/maida, wholewheat flour/atta, Semolina/suji, milk powder and 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder. You can add 1/2 to one teaspoon fennel seeds or saunf if you like. I have forgotten to add 😀

Add 1 and 1/2 cup milk gradually and mix well. Make a batter without any lumps and keep aside.

Add sugar and water in a pan and let it boil. When it starts to boil reduce the flame. Let it boil on low flame for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. After 10 minutes switch off the flame and add the cardamom powder. Mix well.

Now give a good stir to the batter. It should be a flowing batter. If require you can add more milk. If you want your malpua thick and fluffy keep the batter thick. Don’t add extra Milk.

But for thin and crisp malpua make the batter thin by adding 1/2 cup more milk. Add baking soda and mix well.

Heat sufficient oil or ghee/clarified butter in a pan. Drop one ladle full in the middle of the oil. Fry it on low medium flame till the edges becomes crisp and brown. Flip it and fry the other side too.

Slide the hot fried malpua in the sugar syrup. Press with a spoon and flip it. Dip in the syrup with the spoon and remove it to a plate. Don’t keep it in the sugar syrup for long time. Just dip flip and press with the spoon and remove from sugar syrup.

Make all the malpua this way. Serve hot with rabri or reduced milk. You will love it without rabri/reduced milk too.

Enjoy the hot crisp malpua with your family and friends.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!

  2. Happy blog anniversary Sujata. Glad got to know you through the FoodieMonday group. I love malpuas and wondering why I haven’t made them as yet! I guess because I wait for the delicious treat whenever I go to the ISKCON temple in Mumbai. Your malpuas look so so tempting.
