8 Cups Whole wheat flour
550 Gram Evaporated dry milk powder (or 250 grams of mavo aka khoya)
1 kg 350 g castor sugar
1 Cup Milk approx
7 Eggs beaten
1 Cup Pistachio
1 Cup Blanched almonds slivered
1/2 Cup Sultanas (Raisins)
2 tsp powdered cardamoms and nutmeg
Rosewater to taste
1 tsp Salt
1 1/4 Kg Ghee approx
Mix flour, salt, milk and 3-4 tbsp ghee and bind.
Knead and roll into rotlis.
Shallow fry in a little of the measured ghee.
Cool and break into fine pieces, like rough semolina.
Make thin syrup with sugar and a little water.
Cool and add eggs, mavo and broken pieces of fried rotlis.
Add remaining ghee and cook on a low fire, till ghee rises to top.
Remove this ghee if desired. I would!
Cool and add rosewater.

Serve malido warm and garnished with fried almonds/raisins/cashews. Some folks add cherries as well. Enjoy!
The Baj Malido is accompanied with some fruits like Bananas, Apples and Dates. Papri is a unleavened bread that accompanies this.
