What is Malpua?

​​Malpua, also called pua, is a fried pancake, which is served as a dessert. The origin of Malpua comes from the Indian subcontinent and its popularity ranges from Bangladesh to Nepal. Malpua is usually prepared with a batter made using regular flour, water or milk, with fennel seeds and sugar. This batter is then fried in ghee and then soaked in chashni and served with rabri or other nuts. In the other versions of Bangladesh and Nepal, malpua is made by using mashed bananas in a batter and then spooning the batter into the ghee.

    How to make Oats Malpua with Rabri ?

    1) In a large bowl add oats, with a little aniseed, some milk powder and curd. Mix it all together into a batter and cover it and let it rest and hydrate.

    2) While the batter is hydrating, prepare your chashni, for which, add equal parts of granulated sugar and water in a ceramic non-stick pan.

    3) Heat the sugar and let it dissolve in the water to make a chashni. Now, over a non-stick tawa, melt some ghee for shallow frying the malpua.

    5) Once they start to bubble from the edges, it's time to flip them. Cook them on the other side also till they are golden brown.

    Expert Tips

    1. Make sure to sufficiently hydrate the batter, as oats have a higher fibre content than regular flour.
    2. You can also deep fry the malpua, but that would result in a totally crispy and fluffed up malpua.
    3. The thinner you keep the batter, the edges would be more crispier.
