MAL PUA

Past 2 days, I was browsing through net what to prepare on the occasion of Rakhi. Though my brother likes sweet dish I was searching for new recipe. Mal pua is the one which I got struck when I saw here. We dont used to celebrate rakhi in grand way as like as that of northies, but in simple way just tie rakhi on bhaya's hand , pray for him to live long life and the main part getting gifts as a token of love and affection. My elder brother and bhabhi stays currently in Neitherland and my 2 cousin brothers in Mumbai and Indore. Even though they are far, I wished them by sending rakhi greetings. You know friends , me and my brother still fights and tease each other through chat but still cares for each other and this is the unique relationship. I would like to dedicate this post to my brothers and pray for their good luck and good health.


INGREDIENTS FOR THE BATTER.

1 litre Milk,

1/4 cup Maida,

1/4 cup Suji,

1 tbs Sugar.

Oil for shallow fry.

Badam to garnish.

FOR MAKING SUGAR SYRUP.

250 gms Sugar,

1 cup Water,

1 tsp Cardamom powder.

METHOD.

Boil the milk till it reduces to 1/2 its quantity.

Roast the rava till light brown. Add to the milk along with maida and sugar. There should be no lumps.

It should be a smooth pouring consistency. Heat oil in kadai.

Pour in circular movements into the oil to form a small pan cake. Flip them over till its turns brown and cooked.

Make a sugar syrup of 1 thread consistency. Dip the mal pua in the syrup.


Lay out on a plate and decorate them with badam.

I contribute this post to Festivel Food Event: Rakhi – Thread of Love HOSTED BY PRITI AND PURVA.



Enjoy!!
