Today, let's embark on a culinary journey with the delightful Malpua recipe, shared graciously by culinary expert Akanksha Khatri, paired with the efficiency and innovation of DONIV Smart Cookware.


  • 1 cup Mawa, crumbled
  • ½ cup Curd
  • ½ Cup Refined Flour
  • ½ cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 4-5 no Black Peppercorn
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • Ghee, for Deep frying


  1. Preparation of Malpua Batter:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine crumbled Mawa, curd, refined flour, milk, fennel seeds, black peppercorn, cardamom powder, and baking soda.
    • Mix all the ingredients thoroughly until you achieve a smooth batter-like consistency.
    • Allow the batter to rest for approximately 30 minutes to ensure the flavors meld beautifully.
  2. Preparation of Sugar Syrup:
    • In a separate saucepan, combine sugar and water over medium heat.
    • Stir the mixture until the sugar completely dissolves, forming a syrupy consistency.
    • Add rose water and saffron strands to infuse the syrup with aromatic flavors.
    • Set aside the sugar syrup for later use.
  3. Frying Malpua:
    • Heat ghee in a DONIV Stainless Steel Frypan over medium heat.
    • Once the ghee is sufficiently hot, pour a ladleful of the prepared Malpua batter into the pan.
    • Fry the Malpua until it turns golden brown on both sides, ensuring it cooks evenly.
    • Remove the fried Malpua from the pan and place it on a kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
  4. Soaking in Sugar Syrup:
    • While the Malpua is still hot, gently immerse it in the prepared sugar syrup.
    • Allow the Malpua to soak in the syrup for 2-4 minutes, ensuring it absorbs the sweet flavors without becoming soggy.
  5. Garnishing:
    • For an extra touch of indulgence, garnish the Malpua with Rabdi mousse, made by whipping 100g of cream with prepared Rabri and 1 tbsp of thandai powder.
    • Further elevate the presentation with gold varq, delicate rose petals, and a sprinkle of chopped nuts.


1. What is Malpua?

Malpua is a traditional Indian sweet dish made from a batter consisting of ingredients like flour, milk, and flavorings such as cardamom and fennel seeds.

2. How long should I soak the Malpua in sugar syrup?

It is recommended to soak the hot Malpua in the sugar syrup for 2-4 minutes. Be cautious not to soak them for too long to avoid them becoming soggy. The goal is to allow the Malpua to absorb the sweet flavors of the syrup while maintaining their texture and consistency.
