Like Rasgullas in Bengal and Mysore Pak in the south, Malpua is an evergreen hit in the northern parts of the country. Whether it is Holi, a wedding or a party, the dessert counter would be incomplete without these warm, deep-fried and syrup-coated flour discs, which are best had with a topping of rich and spicy rabdi. We have modified the traditional recipe ever so slightly here, to prepare it with minimal oil in a tava instead of deep-frying it; and you will be surprised to note that they are as soft and succulent as the original!
- Combine the sugar and ¾ cup of water in a broad non-stick pan, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 5 to 7 minutes or till the sugar syrup it of 1 thread consistency.
- Add the rose water and switch off the flame.
- Add the saffron-milk mixture, mix well and keep aside.
- Combine the plain flour and fresh cream in a bowl and mix well till no lumps remain. Keep aside.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it lightly with little ghee, pour a little batter on a greased tava (griddle) and spread it evenly to make a 75 mm. (3”) diameter circle.
- Cook on both the sides, using a little ghee, till it turns golden brown in colour.
- Dip the malpua in the warm sugar syrup.
- Repeat with the remaining batter to make 7 more malpuas.
- Serve immediately garnished with almond and pistachio slivers.
