For Malpua Batter:

  • 125 gms All Purpose flour (or otherwise you can also go for Wheat Flour)
  • 3 tablespoons yogurt
  • 500 gms powdered sugar
  • 1 litre milk
  • 3 tablespoons milk solids
  • 3 pinches baking soda
  • ½ cup water OR add as required
  • 3 to 4 green cardamoms (either powdered or crushed)
  • 1 teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
  • 3 tablespoons clarified butter (for frying)

For Caramelized Sugar or Sugar Syrup:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 to 4 cardamom (powdered)
  • 3 to 4 Rose Petals

For Garnishing:

  • Almonds
  • Pistachios


  • Take a mixing bowl. Add to it all purpose flour, fennel seeds, cardamoms, 125 gms powdered sugar. Mix all the ingredients well.
  • Add yogurt and, milk solids (or, you can also use Nestlè’s Milkmaid).
  • Add milk and water until the batter reaches to a pouring consistency. Make sure there forms no lumps.
  • Let the batter rest for at least 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, blanch almonds and pistachios and then, leave them soaked in hot water for half an hour. Peel and slice. Keep aside.

Prepare Sugar Caramel:

  • In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat sugar and water in a ratio of 1:2. Add cardamom powder and rose petals. Simmer down, and stir well so that the sugar caramelizes. Cook till the caramel or sugar syrup gets ½ or 1 inch string consistency. Make sure the syrup is kept warm so that it does not crystallize.
  • Deck out the malpua batter on the kitchen counter. Add to it 3 pinches of baking soda. Mix well.
  • Take a pan or a griddle. Add clarified butter and heat it.
  • Pour half ladle of batter (or an approximate of 2-3 tablespoons) on the hot clarified butter. Lightly, spread the batter with the back of the spatula. Shallow fry the pancakes on a low to medium heat till golden and crispy. Keep on flipping the pancakes a couple of times.
  • Drain the pancakes on paper towels for a fraction of seconds. And immediately, transfer them into the warm sugar syrup. Use a spoon or tongs to gently coat the pancakes with the caramelized sugar. Make sure you stir the sugar syrup well before adding the pancakes to it.
  • Garnish your dessert with almonds and pistachios. Serve hot. Savor the delight!
