  • Maida/all-purpose flour-1cup
  • Condensed milk-5tbsp
  • Warm milk-1 cup
  • Semolina/Rava-2tbsp

  • For garnishing:

For garnishing:

  • Chopped pistachios
  • Chopped almonds


Making of batter:

  • In a bowl, add Maida, crushed fennel seeds, cardamom powder, salt, semolina and mix well.
  • Now add condensed milk and mix well.
  • Add milk slowly and whisk into a smooth batter without lumps. (here I added extra 2tbsp of water to the batter)
  • The batter should be neither too thin or thick. It should be like flowing consistency.
  • If the batter is thin it will spread a lot and makes holes. And if the batter is thick means the malpua will be dense.
  • Cover and rest the batter for 20-30 minutes.

Making of sugar syrup:

  • In the meantime, add sugar and water into a saucepan and bring to boil for 8-10 minutes till the sugar syrup turns sticky.
  • Add saffron strands into the syrup, mix well. Keep aside.

Making of malpua:

  • Heat a pan with oil on low- medium flame.
  • Now again whisk the batter.
  • With the help of ladle drop a small amount of batter into the oil.
  • Malpua will spread by itself and there is no need to spread it.
  • Fry the malpua on both sides until it turns into golden colour.
  • Drop the cooked malpua into the sugar syrup and soak it for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove the soaked malpua into a plate and garnish with chopped almonds and pistachios.
  • Enjoy this delicious Malpua warm or cold!


If the Malpua puffs up when frying, press them in between two spoons to flat them.
