Delicious Sweet - Maladi - with your left over chapatis and Rotis

Do you have a sweet tooth? Are you a person who gets a sudden urge to have some tasty sweet dish - that is homemade? Want to have a sweet, but don't want to work very hard? Do you feel like having sweet at home - a la mom's preparation, even though you can just walk across the road to get nice sweets?

If your answer is yes to any of the above - I bet you are nodding your head vigorously in affirmation :-D - then I am going to give you an easy recipe for a tasty, yummy and delicious sweet you can prepare in minutes. Hold it! There is a catch! You should have some left over chapatis or rotis! And you may ask - what if I don't have? Is that such a big issue? You can prepare now! 


But one thing is sure. Once you learn and prepare this sweet, next time you would not grumble when somebody at home skips breakfast or dinner and chapatis are leftover. Rather, you would take care to prepare extra chapatis secretly so that you can prepare this sweet with the leftovers. Ask me - I know :-D Whenever chapatis are left over in our home I have a secret smug smile on my face :-D   Shh...

Note :


If you don't have leftover chapatis, this dish comes out well with chapatis that are prepared a few hours earlier. So on the occasions you want to prepare this sweet, take care to prepare chapatis well in advance. 


Preparation time              :       10 minutes

Cooking time                     :       10 minutes

Ingredients :


Chapatis                                   :  8

Pounded jaggery                        :  2 cups ( Depends on the sweetness you like )
Roasted and coarsely grounded
Groundnut seeds                        :          1 cup
Pure Ghee                                 :          2 tablespoon ( According to your taste you may increase)
Poppy seeds                              :          1 tablespoon
Elaichi powder                            :          1 teaspoon
Grated dry coconut powder           :          1 tablespoon
Cut and Roasted cashew ( optional )  :     1 tablespoon


Preparation :



  • With both your hands break and rub the chapatis/rotis into coarse powder.  ( This is the reason for taking old chapatis. If you use fresh chapatis, they will not break properly but become just pieces and not powder.)
  • Heat ghee in a thick bottomed kadai.
  • Add pounded jaggery. ( Soft jaggery called Unde Bella tastes better) 
  • Keep stirring till the jaggery melts and turn off the gas.
  • Add Poppy seed, Cashew nuts, Elaichi powder, coconut powder and mix well.
  • Add the crushed chapati powder and mix well.
  • Roll into small balls and serve with ghee.


Happy Cooking :-D
