MALPUA / MILK POWDER MALPUA / INSTANT MALPUA

INGREDIENTS 
1/2 cup Maida (all-purpose flour)
1/2 cup milk powder
1 cup milk (room temperature)
1/2 tsp fennel seeds (saunf)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 ghee (clarified butter) for shallow frying

For Sugar Syrup:

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
few strands of saffron (kesar) (optional)
Nuts for garnishing (optional)


METHOD
Mix together milk powder and maida. Now add milk little by little whisking batter continuously. Make sure not to add milk in one go or lumps can be formed. Add fennel seeds and keep batter aside for 15 minutes.

By the time batter is resting prepare sugar syrup.

For sugar syrup mix together water, sugar and saffron. Turn on the flame and let sugar dissolve completely in water, stirring meanwhile. As soon as sugar melts, turn off the flame.

Let's get back to batter. Add baking powder and mix. Heat ghee in pan, preferably non-stick pan. Add a laddle full of batter over hot ghee and let it cook on medium flame. Once you see bubble appearing on top flip it and cook on the other side for 1 or 2 more minute or till it is brown.

Soak it in sugar syrup for 1-2 minute. Hold it upright to remove excess syrup. Keep on plate. Garnish with chopped nuts and serve.


NOTES:
1. Add milk little by little, use whisker if possible for mixing batter, it will help to get smooth lump free batter.

2.  Add baking powder just before preparing malpuas.

3. Make sure ghee is not very hot or cold. It should be medium hot.


4. The only way to know if it is cooked from underneath is to see the bubbles appearing on top. As soon as bubbles start appearing on top it means it is cooked from down.
