Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 3/4 cup
*Sooji/Bombay Rava 1/4 cup (I have used Fine Sooji)
Fennel Seeds Powder 1/4 tsp
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Milk 1 1/2 cups
Heavy Whipping Cream 2 Tbsp
Ghee 1/4 cup 
Cashews, Almonds, Pistachios chopped for garnish
For the Sugar Syrup - 
Sugar 1/2 cup
Water 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp
Saffron Strands 5-6
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp

*If using the regular Coarse Sooji, please grind it to a semi smooth powder. Since I have used Fine Sooji I skipped this step.

Method Of Preparation -

To Prepare the Sugar Syrup -
In a heated pan add about half cup + 2 tablespoon of water and let it come to a rolling boil. 

Add sugar, saffron strands, cardamom powder and keep stirring. Let the mixture boil for 12-13 minutes until the syrup becomes sticky but not until a one string consistency. Remove from heat and set aside.

To Prepare the Batter -
In a mixer jar add sooji, wheat flour, fennel seed powder, cardamom powder, milk and heavy whipping cream and whip it until it results in a smooth batter. It should be of Dosa Batter consistency.

Cover and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.

To Prepare Malpua -
Heat a wide thick bottomed pan, add about 1/4 cup of ghee. After the ghee is hot, gently drop a ladeful of batter in the center and let the malpua spread a little and wait until the sides turn a shade of golden brown.

Carefully flip the malpua and let the other side cook through. Press with another ladle to drain excess of ghee and transfer onto a serving plate.

Continue with the rest of the batter to make about 20-22 malpua. 

Serving the Malpua -
Heat the sugar syrup and dip each of the fried malpua in the sugar syrup and gently drain off the excess syrup and arrange them on a serving tray.

Sprinkle chopped nuts on the syrup drenched malpua and continue with the rest of the malpua.

Serve them chilled or as is.


Preparation Time 45 minutes
Makes 20-22
