Ingredients:

  • Milk powder: 100 gm
  • Maida (refined flour):100 gm
  • Sooji (semolina): 1 tablespoon
  • Milk: 200-250 ml
  • Fennel seed: 1 teaspoon

Ingredients: for making sugar syrup:

  • Water:  one cup (200 ml)
  • Sugar: 250 gm.
  • Green cardamom: 4-5 no.
  • Ghee: for deep frying
  • Rose essence: optional

Preparation:

  1. Prepare cardamom powder, keep aside.
  2. Put Maida, milk powder, Sooji, together in  a big mixing bowl and make smooth batter by adding milk slowly (to avoid the lumps in the batter). Requirement is free flowing batter not very thick not very thin; add cardamom powder and fennel seeds in the batter. Keep aside, batter to be used after an hour or two.
  3. Make one string of sugar syrup (sugar and water bring it to boil and let it cook for 3-5 minutes). Add green cardamom powder and essence. Let it come to room temperature and it is ready.

Method:

  1. Take a flat bottom fry pan. Pour sufficient ghee in it.
  2. Heat the Ghee on medium flame, after five to six minutes when it is hot pour a drop of batter. The batter should come up after few seconds, if does not; means temperature is low, allow further heating and check proper temperature by putting a drop of batter.
  3. Pour a ladle full of batter to form about 3”diameter “pua”. Cook on slows to medium heat, when it starts to change color, turn-over.  Cook till golden brown (both sides). Remove from pan by pressing with two spoons to squeeze out extra ghee.
  4. Put directly into sugar syrup, immerse into sugar syrup. Remove after 2-3 minutes and drain on wire sieve. Garnish with dry fruits. Special ‘Milk powder malpua’ is ready to serve.
