INGREDIENTS: • Take maida, rava and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add saunf powder and cardamom powder. • Add milk or rabri and mix well, ensuring there are no lumps in the batter. • Add water as required and mix well till smooth. • Make sure the batter is of pouring consistency. • Whisk the batter for at least 5 minutes before covering and letting it resting for 30 minutes. • Heat LITE HOUSE Rice Bran Oil in a deep-bottomed pan. • Pour the batter into the hot oil. Once the malpua starts to float, splash oil over it. • Press each malpua with a perforated spoon gently. The malpuas will puff up like a poori. • Fry both sides till they turn golden brown. • Drain the malpuas onto a kitchen towel to remove excess oil. • Soak the malpuas into hot sugar syrup. • Rest for 10 minutes, making sure both sides of the malpua are soaked well. • Serve malpuas hot with rabri and garnish with nuts.
