Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

Total Time: 30mins

Servings: 4


Instruction :

  • 1. In a wide bowl, take 1/4 cup of crumbled or grated khoya. Add 1/2 cup warm milk. To this, add maida, fennel seeds, a small pinch of salt, sugar and mix well using a whisk. Add the remaining milk and make a smooth, lump free batter.


  • 2. Consistency of batter should be neither too thick nor too thin. It should fall like a thin ribbon. Remember thick batter gives thick and bulgy malpua.You should press it with two ladles while draining from the oil. After you make the first malpua, check for the result and based on its texture you can add  more milk if needed to make the batter thin.


  • 3. Rest the batter for 10 to 15 minutes. In the mean time, you can make sugar syrup. In a wide or deep kadai, take sugar and water. Mix well and boil for 3 to 5 minutes in low flame or till the sugar syrup becomes slightly sticky like gulab jamun syrup.


  • 4. Heat purti sunlife oil in a flat bottomed kadai or pan. Oil should be just 1inch in height ( like frying jalebi).


  • 5. Add a drop of batter to the oil. If it rises to the top immediately, oil temperature is just right. Simmer the flame to low to medium and pour one small ladleful of batter to the oil. Malpua spreads by itself and cooks in purti sunlife oil. Splash some oil on the top if needed. Flip it as soon as the edges become golden brown in color. Cook the other side for a minute and remove from the oil. Drain the oil completely. You can deep fry one by one or 2 to 3 based on the size of pan.


  • 6. Add the cooked malpua to the sugar syrup immediately. Soak for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip it and soak both the sides. Similarly add all the fried malpua based on the size of sugar syrup bowl. Remove after 2 to 3 minutes by draining the excess sugar syrup. Deep fry the remaining malpuas, soak in syrup. Arrange in a plate and garnish with chopped nuts. Serve immediately or warm to enjoy its best taste. You can also top it with rabri and serve it rich !


Enjoy !
