Happy New Year everyone! This is just wishing everybody great health and wealth and sending loads of love to all who care to visit this blog of mine !:)
Malpoa is a traditional bengali sweet dish that is served in all festivals and even in weddings. The deep fried pan cakes (well sort of!) dripping in thick sugar syrup is a favorite among all ! It is simple to make and you can tweak it as you like: like you can add kheer to the batter, or condensed milk, or maybe some chopped dry fruits and some strands of saffron . But what I made for New year was the simplest version and served hot after lunch or dinner it is simply a mouth watering delight!
What you need:
Suji/ semolina--4 tbsp
milk --1 and 1/4 cup
grated coconut--1/2 cup
oil-- for frying
2 cups sugar
1 and 3/4 cup water
Over low heat , in a pan boil the sugar and water to a syrup .It should be hot but not boiling.
Meanwhile in a bowl mix all the ingredients and whisk so that there are no lumps.
Now heat oil in a pan and add a ladle full of batter. Fry until golden brown on both sides.
Directly add the malpoa to the sugar syrup and let it soak for a couple of minutes.
