Pineapple Malpua




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)
Crushed cardamom
2tbsp Sweetened coconut flakes
1-1/2 cup Evaporated milk


For sugar syrup

1 cup sugar
1cup water

Preparation

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.
