Malpuas (Indian Pancakes)

Hi Friends ...
Raksha-Bandhan just gone and many more festivals yet to come ......Coming of guests during the festive season is very common. Make something at home just to impress them :-)
Malpuas are specially made during the festival time in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Maharashtra. It is served as a dessert or a snack. Loved making it, you can also try this at home......

500 ml milk
1 cup all purpose flour (maida)
1/2 cup semolina (suji)
1/4 tsp cardamon powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp fennel seeds
Oil for deep frying
For sugar syrup:
3 cups of water
2 cups of  sugar
1/4 tsp cardamon powder (elaichi powder)
For Garnishing: Chopped almonds


  • Boil milk and then keep it on low flame for 15-20 mins.
  • Remove from fire and once it will be lukewarm add suji, maida, sugar and fennel seeds. Mix it well so that there should be no lumps in the batter.
  • Keep the batter in fridge for 3-4 hrs.
  • Meanwhile make sugar syrup, boil water in heavy bottomed pan.
  • Add sugar and stir till sugar completely dissolves. 
  • Add eilachi powder. Mix well. Cook on low flame till it forms the thick syrup of one string consistency.
  • Heat non-stick pan, Add oil.

  • Now pour batter with a ladle. Pour 3 times batter in pan to make 3 pancakes at a time.
  • Cook on medium flame till pancakes turn golden brown from both the sides.

  • Take them out and put them in sugar syrup for 3-4 mins.

  • Garnish with chopped almonds and serve hot.
  • Enjoy.
