  • 2 tbsp Ghee
  • 1 tbsp peppercorns
  • 2 cups - Milk
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 tbsp - Curd
  • Pinch each of salt and soda.
  • How to Make Malpua:

    1. Place the flour & the semolina in a dekchi and mix them with milk, curd, jaggery and a pinch of salt.
    2. Beat for at least for 5 to 7 minutes so that the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
    3. Pound the peppercorns coarsely and add to the mixture.
    4. Heat 2 tbsp of ghee and pour over the mixture.
    5. Mix well, cover the dekchi and let it stand for 7-8 hours in a warm place.
    6. The mixture would have puffed up by this time. Stir well. If thick, add a little milk or water to bring it to pouring consistency.
    7. Add and blend in the pinch of soda and lime juice.
    8. Place a deep frying pan with lot of ghee in it. When hot, lower the flame and gently drop in 1 tbsp of the ready batter into the heated ghee.
    9. Fry to a golden brown colour on both sides.
    10. Take out with a slotted spoon and place in a strainer so that the extra ghee drips down.
    11. Fry all the Malpuas.
