Recipe Description

Malpua is a pancake served as a dessert, popular in India


  • Milk – 1 litre
  • Sugar – 300 grams
  • Saffron strands – 5-6 strands
  • Refined flour – 30 grams
  • Ghee for frying – 1/2 cup



  1. Boil the milk in a deep non stick pan, stirring continuously, till it reduces to a consistency that coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Reserve thirty grams of the sugar and make a one-string consistency syrup with the rest of the sugar.
  3. Dissolve the saffron threads in a teaspoon of hot milk and add it to the sugar syrup.
  4. Stir the flour and the reserved sugar into the cooled thickened milk. Mix well and make a batter of pouring consistency, adding a little milk if required. Set aside for three hours.
  5. Heat the ghee in a non stick frying pan. Pour a little batter into the hot ghee to form a pancake.
  6. Ladle hot ghee over the pancake and turn it over. When both sides are cooked, drain and immerse in the saffron-flavoured sugar syrup. Make the rest of the malpuas.
  7. Serve warm.
