Bengali Malpua Recipe – How to prepare Malpua at Home

Bengali Malpua recipe is a very easy to prepare yet one of the yummiest dessert recipe. Malpua is a traditional pithe of bengal which all bengalese obviously have during the month of pous or atleast in the day of pous sankranti (makar sankranti). Yesterday on the day of sankranti, I was feeling very nostalgic while remembering all those lip-smacking pithe, ma used to prepare … Patisapta, Puli pithe, malpua, doodh puli, chitoi pitha to name a few. Ma used to get up at 4:00 clock to prepare & offer those pithe-payesh to Sujji Thakur (Sun God) after a bath in the coldest day of the month. We children (me & my friends) would be waiting eagerly for our turn to come (Obviously for eating… 🙂 ). I loved the very sharing part of this festival – we used to present pithe to our neighbours & also receive from them. Today I will share the traditional malpua recipe in bengal style.
