Remove the cooked malpua and drain the excess oil. Drop the malpua in sugar syrup and allow it to soak for 10 minutes. Repeat the same with the remaining batter. Drain the malpuas from the syrup, garnish with pistachios, saffron water and rabri. Serve immediately.serving malpua’s with rabri is also a superb idea. Follow the step by step recipe.

  • Reserve two tablespoons of sugar and form one-string sugar syrup with the rest of the sugar and two cups of water.

  • Add refined flour, green cardamom powder and the reserved sugar to the reduced milk. Mix well and make a batter of pouring consistency using a little milk if required.

  • When both sides are done, drain and immerse in the sugar syrup. Garnish with pistachios and serve hot.
  • For rabri –
  • Mix the milk and 1 cup of sugar in a thick bottomed pan, cook to reduce it to a fourth of its original volume while stirring frequently, remove it from the fire allow cooling and chilling in the refrigerator. your rabri is ready now ether you mix it with batter or serve with malpua .
  • some time I use rabari instead of koya ,  making malpua’s with rabri really makes a noticeable difference in taste , at some special occasion’s you can try this trick also
  • .


  • Let the Malpua batter rest for at least 6-8 hours for a better flavour.
  • Traditionally, Malpuas are made with maida. However, if you want healthier Malpuas, use atta or wheat flour. You can even mix them in the ratio of 1:1.
  • Last, but not the least, if you want lip-smacking Malpuas, then make the sugar syrup of 1-string consistency and don’t let it thick.
  • You can also add some green cardamom powder and saffron in your Malpua for more flavours.
