Instructions

Making the batter

  • Take all purpose flour, milk powder, fennel seeds, saffron, cardamom powder in a mixing bowl, Add a pinch of salt and mix well.
  • Add milk mix well. whisk very well to form a free flowing batter without any lumps. The batter should be like appam batter (consistency)
  • Let the batter sit for 20-30 minutes.

making sugar syrup

  • Bring 1/2 cup water to a boil, add 3/4 cup sugar and dissolve. Add a pinch of saffron and some cardamom powder. Mix well and simmer for 10 minutes, Remove from flame and set aside.

Frying malpua

  • Mix the prepared batter once, and take a ladle full of batter and pour in the hot oil. Cook from both sides until golden brown and edges turn crisp.
  • Remove from oil and immediately soak in the sugar syrup. Soak for few seconds and remove. repeat the same with the remaining batter.
  • Serve with nuts, hot or warm with rabdi.

Notes

1. If the batter is very thick, the malpuas will turn soft and dense, the batter should be free flowing for thin and crispy malpuas.
2.You can add crumbled khova instead of milk powder
3. The oil or ghee should be hot, else the crepes will soak up oil and turn chewy too.
