    • Once the ghee gets heated, add a pinch of soda into the batter and mix well.
    • Take the batter in a large serving spoon and gently pour it down in the hot ghee using the same serving spoon.
    • Now spread the batter gently by pressing it lightly from the back of the serving spoon.
    • Make the malpua from the remaining batter. You can increase or decrease the size of the malpua while deep-frying them.
    • Fry the malpua on medium-high flame. Make sure you fry from both the sides.

    Adding Malpua To Sugar Syrup

    • Add the fried malpua directly into the sugar syrup. Coat the malpua gently with the sugar syrup. You can do so with the help of a pair of tongs or a spoon.

    • Reduce the flame and let it simmer while you stir the milk at regular intervals.

    • Serve malpua with a spoonful of rabri on the top of it.
    • You can also refrigerate the rabri.
  • You can also cook the malpua like a pancake using a little bit of ghee or refined oil. You can also add the sugar into the malpua batter instead of making the sugar syrup. You can substitute the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour. It is better to ferment the batter for 5-6 hours. When you do so, you don’t need to add the baking soda into the batter. You can also add mashed bananas or mango pulp into the batter.
