Madakkupathal (sweet parathas)

Madakkupathal is a malabar layered parantha/pathiri soaked in sugar syrup. This is an easy one compared to muttamaala (egg garlands) and many other malabar desserts. It is often served as a starter during functions like marriages, receptions and all.


Ingredients:
(Makes 5)

White Flour/Maida 1 cup
Egg 1 +4
Sugar 1/2 cup
Water 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp

Method:


1.Make a dough using maida,egg ,salt and enough water. The dough should be same as we do for rotis.

2.Make 5 equal balls out of this. Roll out them into rotis one at a time. Brush ghee over it and fold it just the same way as we do for Madakku Chappathi .ie; into a square box.

3.Roll them again in such a way that four corners are stretched a bit.

4.Then again fold those stretched ends to the centrepoint.

5.Stick them there and turn them upside down.

6.Now roll them again into thick squares.
Second Folding

7.Deepfry these squares just like puris until it turns brown.

8.Now beat the remaining 4eggs using a fork with a pinch of cardamom.

9.Heat a tbsp of ghee in a non-stick pan. Dip these pathiris/paranthas; one at a time; in  beaten egg so nicely  that these are well soaked in egg.

10.Pan fry these pathiris dipped in egg. Turn and fry the other side too. Take this out from the pan onto a plate and pour sugar syrup over it.

11.Let the pathiris soak well in syrup. Serve warm



For Sugar Syrup:

Boil sugar and water together till it reaches one string consistency. Add 1/2 a tsp of cardamom powder to it.
