  • 1 cup sugar

  • few threads of saffron


  1. In a large mixing bowl add plain flour, quinoa flour, semolina, sugar, fennel powder, cardamom powder and mix them well together.
  2. Pour the milk and stir the malpua batter well to ensure there are no lumps in it.
  3. Add water as required until the batter forms into a smooth pouring consistency.
  4. Continue to whisk the batter for 5 minutes.
  5. Cover the batter and allow it to rest for nearly 30 minutes.
  6. To prepare the sugar syrup, heat a large saucepan over medium flame.
  7. Pour the water into the saucepan and add sugar to it. Stir it well until the sugar dissolves completely. 
  8. Add the cardamom powder and saffron to the saucepan and bring it to a boil. Then bring it down the stove before soaking the cooked malpuas in it.
  9. Heat a deep fry-pan on low to medium flame and grease it with an adequate amount of oil or ghee. 
  10. Pour a dollop of malpua batter on the heated pan to form the shape of a circular malpua. Flip the malpua to cook evenly on both sides until they turn golden brown.
  11. Repeat the previous step for the remaining batter and bring down the cooked malpuas onto a plate.
  12. Soak each malpua into the hot sugar syrup for about 4 to 5 minutes and strain excess sugar syrup from the malpuas.
