Malpua-- Chahe to Gulgule Bula Lo!

Agle hafte Holi hai.. And Holi in our home is incomplete without two things-- Malpua and Gujiya. Har saal ki tarah , this year also we made Malpua..bas thoda advance mein, to give all of you a feel of the Pre-Holi mood!

Holi has always been big..like any UP household. But, I remember hiding in the kitchen when ever people started playing! hume kabhi bhi rangon ke saath khelne mein mazaa nahi aata tha. Hume to mazaa aata tha mithai banane mein..aur  khilane mein!

To chaliye batate hain kaise banta hai malpua humare yahaan; waise to Ab humare saare bacche banaa lete hain bahaut accha Malpua!

Ingredients/ Zyada kuch nahi chaiye ye banane ke liye  :


  • Atta/Flour: 3 cup ke kareeb
  • Chini/Sugar: 1-1/2 cup
  • Sukha nariyal / Coconut - Bilkul chota chota kaat ke/Cut in small pieces : 1/4 Cup
  • Moti Elaichi/ Brown Cardamom: 4-6 koot ke/crushed
  • Kishmish (hume pasand hai, chaho to nahi bhi daal sakte ho)/Raisins: 50 grams
  • Doodh/Milk : 1/2 kilo (Full cream)
  • Desi Ghee: ( humara manna hai ke meetha hamesha desi ghee mein hi banna chahiye)


Process/ Banane ka tareeka :

  • Banane se pehle thodi si tayaari ki zaroorat hogi, because we need to soak the ingredients for a few hours before we make it. Atta, chini aur thoda paani lekar, we need to make a batter out of it. Remember faitne ke samay, move your hand only in one direction. Ab you can leave the batter for a few hours ( mai shaam ko banaa ke raat bhar ke liye chod deti hun).
  • Subah, boil the milk to make it thicker, kheer ke jaise gaadha kar lo. Jinhe kheer ka koi idea nahi, boil the 500 gms of milk till it becomes 300gms. 
  • Then mix the batter, coconut , elaichi, kishmish and milk together.
  • Heat Ghee in a kadhai. Kadhai ko aadha bhar dena ghee se.


 Ek gol karche ke saath (so that it takes a round shape), put a dollop of the batter in the hot ghee. Keep covering the dollop with the hot ghee in the kadhai till it becomes fluffy. Since the dollops are light, they generally float in the kadhai.



Sunehra rang aane tak, talte raho. Nikaalne se pehele, hold the malpua in one karchi, aur doosre se excess ghee dabaa ke nikaal lo.



Garma garam malpua tayaar! Khaane ke baad hume phone zaroor karna.

Ek aur cheez; agar malpua thanda ho jaaye, heat it in the oven before eating it. The melted ghee on the Malpua gives a heavenly feeling!
