Mawa Malpua (Malpua II)

Hello Friends,


Another Blogging Marathon week. It is BM # 6 and I am doing Regional Specials again and will be posting 7 days of Rajasthani Delicacies.


This time I wanted to start with a famous dessert :)


This is actually a Holi special, or shall I say we like to make it anytime. I learnt this from my SIL. I always used to make it like Malpua - I (which my mom taught me - kind of Bihari style).


Mawa Malpua - मावा मालपुआ (Reduced Milk Dessert)
Ingredients
Maida - 1 cup
Cheeni - 1 cup
Mawa - 1 cup
Warm Milk - to make thick batter (such that it can be spread on a griddle)
Grounded Ilaichi-  4-5
Grounded Kali Mirch - 5-7
Ghee/Oil - For frying
Pistachios and Almonds - For Garnishing
For Syrup
Sugar - 1.5 cups
Water - 3/4 cup
Preparation
  • Make 1 string sugar syrup with syrup ingredients (basically bring it to boil and let it cook for 3-4 minutes). Let it come to room temp and keep ready.
  • Mix all the ingredients of malpua except oil (like fritter or pancake batter).
  • Pour a spoonful of batter on a hot griddle and spread it like you would do for a small uttapam/pancake. 
  • Make it only that of a poori size (about 3 inches in diameter). 
  • Pour little oil/ghee on and around it and let it cook on each side for 60-90 seconds on medium heat. 
  • Once it is done dip malpuas in syrup and remove immediately.
  • Another way of doing it (if you are lazy like me), you can mix syrup in the batter itself and skip the extra step of dipping it in syrup. I usually make a few by dipping and then become too lazy and mix both and do the rest. The taste surely will be slightly different between both.
  • You can also deep fry these malpuas and don't really have to do it on griddle. I do it just to consume less ghee/oil.
  • Malpuas are usually thick like pancake/uttapam. Make sure that it is cooked properly on both sides and it is not left raw from inside.
Serve As the other malpua, this can be eaten hot or cold as you may like. Garnish malpuas with some chopped pista and sliced almonds. It is also traditionally topped with some hot rabri (reduced milk dessert). I personally prefer warm ones :)


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