Wheat Malpua without deep-frying

wheat malpua recipe

We all are aware of the delectable Malpua and love to have them served at festivities….but why not make them at home if you can avoid deep frying them and create them even without Khoya or Mawa!! I am sharing my recipe for Wheat Malpua without deep-frying, yes…this is possible.

The malpuas taste insanely flavorful and lip-smacking, I can feel my mouth watering even while writing the recipe…so let’s get stated ASAP!

  • Preparation Time: 30 min
  • Cooking Time: 30 min
  • Serves 16-18 small malpua
  • Tbsp = Table Spoon
  • Tsp = Tea Spoon


Atta (Wheat Flour) – 2 cups (If you want, you can use 1 cup wheat+1 cup Maida (All-Purpose Flour)

Milkmaid – ½ cup

Milk – 1 cup approx.

Baking Powder – 1 tsp

Sugar – 1 cup

Water – 2 cups approx.

Kesar (Saffron) – 3-4 strands

Elaichi (Cardamom) – 2, powdered

Saunf (Fennel Seeds) – 1 tsp

Ghee – 8 to 10 tbsp

Dry Fruits of your choice for garnishing


Take a bowl and add atta, baking powder, elaichi powder, fennel seeds and mix together nicely. Once done with the mixing of dry ingredients add milk and milkmaid and mix everything with the help of spatula or whisker….the mixture should be neither too thick nor too thin.

Note: If your batter feels too thick add some milk or of it feels too thin then add some more flour to it, in small quantities.

When the batter is ready keep it aside for 15min.

Now put a sauce pan over medium flame and add 1 cup sugar, 2 cups water and Kesar. Keep boiling this mixture for around 15-20min till the quantity reduces to 2/3rds and you get a thick sugar syrup (it’s also called “2 taar ki chashni”)

Once the sugar syrup is ready, keep the pan aside and put a sauté pan over the flame.

When the pan is hot, spread about 2 tbsp of ghee over it uniformly and put the batter with the help of a spoon in small quantities (as shown in the picture below), there is no need to spread the batter, just put one tbsp of batter one place…it should take its own shape. You will be able to put 4 to 5 malpuas in the pan at a time.

Cook the malpuas over lower flame for 2-3 min, until they turn dark brown in colour, now flip them to cook the other side similarly.

In the similar manner you have to cook malpuas out of the entire batter.

When the malpuas come to normal temperature, dip them into the sugar syrup for 5-10 sec and put into serving dish. Repeat the same process for all the malpuas, pour the leftover sugar syrup over the malpuas laid into the serving plate.

Garnish the yummy Wheat Malpua with the dry fruits of your choice.

Your Wheat Malpua without deep-frying are ready to be served with love!!
