Malpua with Rabdi- a deadly Combination!!!

Malpua with Rabdi is an deadly combination and ones you eat them you will never forget the taste and crave for more. This is a traditional, rich dessert that is made during festivals in India. 

Recently my friend was talking about it and I remembered how we used to go to a restaurant called "Mast Kalandar" in Banglore to eat Thali and at last they used to serve "malpua with rabdi". That's the first time I ate and instantly fell in love with the flavors. From then on we used to go to that restaurant just to eat this dessert.

Malpuas dipped in sugar syrup

In US, it's very difficult to get this sweet delicacy as it is available only during special occasions. The thought of making malpua with rabdi came to me long back and so here it is today in my blog post. I am so happy that I tried making this dessert as I thought it's impossible to make this amazing combination of rabdi and malpua. 

Here in the recipe I have used milk- mava powder instead of that we can use khoya too. Milk- mava powder is perfect to make Indian sweets. We can use whole wheat flour to make the malpuas but I want the authentic taste and so I made it using flour.

Soft and fluffy inside and crispy outside. These sugar dipped pancakes are a real treat. Hope you all will try this delicious finger licking dessert.

  1. Mix all the ingredients with required amount of milk in a mixing bowl. the batter should not be too thick or thin. It must be free flowing. Keep this aside
  2. Meanwhile heat oil in a deep pan. On medium flame, pour a ladle full of the batter into the hot oil. Make 3- 4 malpuas in the oil depending upon the pan size. Ones the sides become light brown, flip it and fry till done. Take out the malpuas and dip in the above made sugar syrup and keep it in a bowl.
