kele ka malpuabanana malpua recipe | kele ka malpua | malpua banana | kele ke malpua with step by step photo and video recipe. traditional sweets and dessert recipes are popular choices during the festival season in india. it is generally made as offering to the beloved god and eventually served to friends and family. one such simple and the easy traditional sweet recipe is malpua, but this recipe is made with a banana flavour.

i am not a huge fan of deep-fried sweet recipes and i generally avoid. especially sweets like jalebi or jhangeer which are so good taste, but are very bad to you health. this is for the fact the it is made with maida flour, deep-fried and dipped in sugar syrup. the malpua also has a similar process, but just that it is made with wheat flour. hence it can be termed as slightly better compare to these sweets. however, there are some variants of malpua which is made with maida. i totally agree that sweets made from plain tastes fabulous but can very harmful to your health. hence i recommend to consume it with caution.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to banana malpua recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend using ripe and sweet banana for this recipe. ripe banana easily gets mashed and gels together with wheat flour. also, the sweet banana adds the sweet taste and flavour to the malpua. secondly, the batter has to be of medium consistency. if it is thin, it may not form the shape and if it thick it may not spread uniformly. you may adjust the consistency by adding either wheat flour or milk for a thick or thin consistency. lastly, i have dipped the malpua in sugar syrup for just 2 minutes. you may soak it for more time depending upon sweet preference.
