Buss-up-Shut and Malida

Hi everyone! Since Eid is quickly approaching, I decided to do a simple and quick dessert that is usually enjoyed at this time. This has to be my most favorite Eid dessert other than Sawine. This is made by pounding or flaking buss-up-shut or paratha roti and mixing it with condensed milk, coconut and spices. It’s so yummy!!

Here are the ingredients:

This recipe will yield 50 Malidas.

For the Buss-up-Shut:
3 1/2 cups of flour
3 1/2 tsps of baking powder
1 tbsp of ghee to knead the dough and more for cooking the roti
1 1/2 tbsp crisco or cookeen and more for cooking the roti
1 1/2 tbsp of full cream milk powder
1 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar
1 tsp salt
water to knead a soft dough

For the Malida:
3 Buss-up-Shut/Paratha roti
1 whole dry coconut, grated finely
1/4 cup of condensed milk or more if you want
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsps vanilla essence
1 tbsp butter
raisins, cherries or nuts (optional)


Here’s my video showing how I made the Malidas:
