Kele Ka Malpua - केले का मालपुआ (Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes in Sugar Syrup)

Hello friends,


Here is my first entry to CFK - WWF Event :)





Kele Ka Malpua - केले का मालपुआ  (Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes in Sugar Syrup)


Ingredients
For Batter
Aata (Whole Wheat Flour) - 1/2 cup
Maida (All-Purpose Flour) - 1/2 cup
Sooji (Semolina) - 1/4 cup
Banana - 1 big one mashed well
Milk - 1.5 cups (add more or less depending upon on how thick it looks)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Kishmish (Raisins) - 1 tbsp
For Sugar Syrup
Sugar - 1.5 cups
Water - 1.5 cups
For Garnishing
Pistachios
Preparation

  • Mix everything under For Batter well. Add milk little by little after adding 1.25 cups by eyeballing it. The batter should not be very runny, it should be little bit thicker than usual cake/dosa batter. Basically, when you pour a ladle in oil, it should hold shape of a circle and not run haywire.
  • Keep it aside for 4-5 hours.
  • Prepare sugar syrup of 1 string consistency by mixing the ingredients under For Sugar Syrup. 
  • Keep it warm (not hot) when you are ready to fry malpuas.
  • Take a small pan and add enough oil to be able to fry malpuas (feel free to add a lot of oil, but that is not needed).
  • Once the oil is hot, slow the fire and keep it that way as we want to fry these malpuas in slow heat (not all the way slow, but not very high either).
  • Now, take a ladle full of batter (i would say about 1/4 to 1/2 cup) and try to pour it in a circular form in the middle of your pan (or wok whatever you are using). Make sure, it is not too thin, or else it will break apart. Let it be thick like a thin cookie thickness.
  • You will notice that it will slowly come up. Let it cook on both sides for abour 1-2 min (depending on how hot your oil is). 
  • Please do not turn the malpua multiple times, so remember you flip only once. 
  • Once it is golden brown, drain it properly and dip it directly in the sugar syrup (if your malpua has lot of excell oil, please feel free to drain it first in the paper towel).
  • Let it be in the sugar syrup for about 5-10 seconds and remove it.

Serve
Serve it warm (warm is good as it has syrup or else the syrup will crystallize) garnishing with some sliced or chopped pistachios.


A wonderful and easy dessert it is. Though, I like to eat it any part of the day. One more variation I do is, sometimes, not put them in sugar syrup and simply eat them as it is, in which case, please feel free to increase the sugar quantity of the batter. My husband likes the one without syrup better :)


That's all for now. Take care till next post.
