Malpua is a delicious sweet pancake which is served as both snacks and dessert in the Indian subcontinent and is specially part of the morning food served to Lord Jagannath of Puri. Malpua is also a special preparation during the Raja Sankranti festival in Odisha, India.
For making Malpua, you need to mix salt, baking powder, semolina and maida in a bowl and add water and condensed milk to make a thick batter, and set it aside for at least 15 minutes. Next, also mix water and sugar in a pan and this needs to be boiled until it becomes of 1 string consistently.
Next, ghee needs to be heated in a shallow Kadhai and spoonsful of the batter need to be poured into the hot ghee and deep-fried over a medium flame. Now, this needs to be cooked on both the sides until the Malpua attains a golden-brown colour.
Drain the Malpua on absorbent paper before dipping it into sugar syrup for a full minute and removing it later. Arrange the Malpuas on a plate and garnish with chopped pistachios. Enjoy!
