If you love desserts, then you have got to try this uber simple and delectable dish! Malpuas are a must have at most of the Indian celebrations, particularly weddings! Dipped in sugar syrup, you can add a little aromatic twist to this preparation by adding a few drops of rose water or kewra water to the sugar syrup before soaking the fried malpuas in it.

I can vouch for the fact that you will not be able to resist having these after a bite! Ideally, malpuas must have a slight crunch around the edges, which may be achieved by cooking them on low to medium flame for a while. Traditionally, malpuas are served with kheer or rabri…

Garnish with the toppings of your choice and enjoy the sweet Indian flavors at home!


In a large bowl, add the milk, milk powder, flour, green cardamom powder, and mix all the ingredients until well combined and a flowing batter is achieved. Use a fork or a ladle to beat the dough for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until it turns a little fluffy.

If time permits, cover and keep the batter aside for 3 to 4 hours.

Now, in a small pan boil the granulated white sugar with water until the sugar dissolves and slightly thick syrup is formed. Immerse this pan in to another pot or pan containing boiling water to prevent the sugar from getting crystallized. In a non stick pan heat the ghee and then add a heaped tablespoon of the batter in it. Fry the malpua on both sides until it is light brown in color.

Now, dip the fried malpuas in the sugar syrup and then remove it on to the serving platter. Repeat the process with the remaining batter. Garnish the malpuas with sliced almonds or pistachios and enjoy!


Add a few drops of boiling water to the sugar syrup in case the syrup starts to thicken too much or crystalize.
