I have made a sweet dish from Sandeepa’s Bong Mom’s cookbook . It does not look exactly like hers but somewhere near by. Malpua tastes very delicious and is pretty easy to make. I made some slight variations though. This one goes to Coffee’s MBP .
Thanks to Sandeepa and Coffee, Being our wedding anniversary we enjoyed this lovely dish a lot.
Ingredients for Batter
1 cup all purpose flour (Maida)
½ cup Semolina (Sooji)
1/3 cup crushed pineapple (Dole brand)
2tbsp Sweetened coconut flakes
1-1/2 cup Evaporated milk
For sugar syrup
1 cup sugar
Prepare Sugar syrup to one string consistency and set aside. Mix up all the ingredients given for batter together and let it sit aside for about 3-4 hours.
Make small sized pancakes out of the batter on a griddle/Tava. Let it get golden brown on both the sides on medium heat. I used non stick pan so very less oil was used.
Dip them in sugar syrup and serve warm.
Sandeepa's version looks beautiful.
