    For making mixture

    Making malpuas

    • Firstly, take a flat pan with desi ghee. And, heat it. The Ghee should not be boiling hot.
    • Add Baking Soda to the batter and mix well. Our batter is ready.
    • Now, lower the flame. With the help of a deep laddle (Karchi), gently pour the batter in the hot ghee.
    • When the base becomes golden brown, flip it. Flip it over again if needed. Fry till they have crispy golden brown edges.
    • When they are ready, take a flat spatula and place the fried Malpuas on it and press gently with another flat spatula. This is to be done to remove the excess ghee into the pan.
    • Immediately, place the fried malpuas in the sugar syrup.
    • Flip them over and take them out instantly. Otherwise, they will break.
    • Lastly, place them in a plate.
    • Yippyyyy….. our yummy, mouth licking Malpuas are ready to eat… 😛

    Malpuas are everybody’s love. But, as they take a lot of time and effort to cook. So, we always leave the thought of making them. But not now. Here is the easiest recipe of Malpuas. Literally, a 5 minutes recipe. No need to have Mawa or Powdered milk or anything else. You just need milk which is easily available in our homes. Above all, Malpuas are all-time favourites of everybody. Even, at my home my kids love to have malpuas as Dessert after every meal. Here are some points to take care:
    • Firstly, adding sooji make them crispy. You can skip that also.
    • Secondly, I add half of the sugar in the mixture only.
    • If we don’t add sugar in the mixture then we have to add the whole sugar for the syrup. So, the sugar syrup becomes thicker which makes a thick coat on the Malpuas. And, which doesn’t taste nice.
    • Thirdly, Fennel seeds are just to add a nice flavour to the Malpuas. You can completely skip that or you can add any other flavour also. Like, Cardamom powder etc.
    • Most importantly, please use Desi Ghee to make Malpuas if possible. You will definitely miss the flavour otherwise.
    • Lastly, remove the Malpuas from the syrup instantly. Otherwise, they will break there only.
    Enjoy with your yummy Malpuas… 🙂
