In a mixing bowl, take fresh malai add sugar, mix and keep it aside.
In a big thali or a mixing bowl. Take maida to this add 1-2 teaspoon oil. Mix it with your hands. Oil is added so that mathri becomes crispy and flaky. You can check the dough by binding it with your palms. If the maida is coming together it’s good. Now add malai+ sugar mixture and make a medium soft dough.
We are not adding any water/milk to bind the dough. Just the malai mixture. If you are in short of malai. Add a bit of milk and knead it well.
Once the dough is done. Make a big round of it and cut it into small squares.
Heat oil in a kadhai and deep fry these malai mathris. Cook them on low flame till light golden color and take them out. Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.
Let them cool down and store it in an airtight container.
Voila, Malai Mathri is ready. Happy Holi.
Measure everything with the same katori or cup.
In case you are short of malai, add few drops of milk to bind the dough.
