Mal pua


alpua or Amalu (in Oriya) is an Indian pancake which is a traditional dessert.  This is popular throughout the India. Although every region has its own version but few ingredients are same in every version, that is all purpose flour, Suji and milk.
I learn to make these malpuas from my friend who is from Bihar. So here I'm writing the Bihari version of this mouth watering dish.

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Suji - 1/2 cup
Ripe banana - 1 small
Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Coconut cut in small pieces - 1 tbsp
Milk - 1 1/2 cup or as required
Oil for deep frying
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 3/4 cups
Cardamom powder - 1/3 tsp

  • First make the sugar syrup by adding sugar and water in a heavy bottom pan. We need one string consistency. Add cardamom powder in the sugar syrup.
  • To make malpuas, mash a banana in a mixing bowl, add all the remaining ingredients to it and mix thoroughly.
  • Heat oil in a wide flat bottom pan. Pour a ladlefull of batter at a time to make a round disc like a pancake.
  • Cook on slow to medium heat.
  • Flip it and let it cook from the other side.
  • When it is light brown from both the sides, its time to take it out from the oil.
  • Drain the excess oil and immerse it in the sugar syrup.
  • After a minute remove it from sugar syrup and arrange in a plate and garnish with chopped nuts.
  • Malpuas can be served with rabri to.
