Malpua

Introduction

Malpua - yes, so yummy even when you just think about it. Malpua and hot tea early in the morning - how amazing is that? I remember my Nini (dad's sister) used to bring malpua whenever she used to visit us. We loved it! Indeed, fond memories down the lane. My mom made it for us recently and thought to share with you. Few of our friends have asked for the recipe. Here it is and hope you like it!

Makes about 42 malpuas

  • Fennel Seeds - 2 tbsp
  • Cardamom Powder - 2 tsp
  • Ghee - 1/3 cup
  • Water - 700ml (~3 cups)

Checkout the Youtube video of the consistency as well.

Soak overnight. When you soak overnight, the batter gets better. You can also leave for 2 - 3 hours if you are willing to do it on the same day, but overnight is even better.

When you are ready to eat, heat the oil in a cast-iron pan. Make sure that the level of the oil should half submerge the batter.

When the oil is hot, pour the batter and spread to make a round shape.

Turn over until it is cooked.

Strain the excess oil with a strainer when you remove the cooked malpua from the pan and place it in a paper towel laid plate so as to soak extra oil. Also, checkout the video as how you can make one here.

Malpua is ready to be served with a hot cup of milk tea. Enjoy!
