Hi friends,
Am back with yet another theme for BM #11. Am preparing Bihari recipes for this week. Today's recipe is Maal pua. Its a sweet dish. Easy to make and tastes yummy. Check out the recipe...

We need:

Maida / All purpose flour 1cup
Milk 1 1/2 cup
Banana 1 mashed
Grated coconut 1sp
Raisins and cashew nuts 1/4 cup
Sooji / semolina 1sp
Suagr 1 cup
Water 1 1/2 cup
Elachi powder pinch
Ghee / butter / oil 1/2 cup


Mix all the ingredients to smooth batter to make pua.
Make sugar syrup by adding water an sugar.
Add powdered elachi/ cardamom.
Heat ghee / butter in a pan and put 1/4 cup of batter to form a round pancake.
Deep fry till golden brown and strain oil.
Repeat with rest of the batter.
Keep the pua in a serving plate and just before serving heat the syrup again and dip the fried pua for a minute.
Now the pua becomes Malal pua.
Strain the sugar syrup and serve hot.
