Mava Malpua

Malpua is a traditional Indian sweet. It is basically a fried pancake dunked in sugar syrup. On our many visits to Jaipur, we used to relish this sweet and at that time, I never thought to make this at home. It's the first time, I have tried this and trust me, it came out wonderful. The recipe is very simple and requires no skills. Just mix the batter and pour it in hot ghee. That's all you have to do to make this wonderful sweet at home. Do give it a try. Here is the recipe.

All you need is

Milk - 1 and 1\2 cup ( warm, not hot )
Khoya - 1\2 cup ( grated )
Maida - 1 cup
Saunf- 1 tsp ( coarsely grounded )
Sugar - 2 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Baking powder - a small pinch
Ghee for frying

For the sugar syrup

Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1\4 cup
Cardamom - 2-3 ( grounded )
Saffron - 8-10 strands

Method of preparation

Add sugar, cardamom, saffron and water in a pan.
Cook till the syrup is of one string consistency.
Keep aside

Mix half of the warm milk and khoya in a bowl.
Mix till khoya is combined.
Add half of the maida and mix to make a smooth paste.
Add the remaining maida and make a smooth paste.
Add sugar, saunf, salt and baking powder.
Mix well.
Add the remaining milk and mix well.
Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Heat ghee in a shallow pan.
Mix the batter and pour a small ladle full  ( approx 2 tbsp ) in the hot ghee. ( The ghee should not be too hot )
Simmer the heat to low and fry the malpua on both the sides till golden brown.
Remove from ghee and dip in the sugar syrup for 2 minutes.
Serve hot as such or with kesar rabdi.
