  • 1 litre - milk, full Cream
  • 6 tbsp - plain flour
  • 1.5 tbsp - Ghee for frying each malpua
  • 16 - pistachios, sliced for garnishing
  • For the syrup:
  • 6 - green cardamoms, peeled and powdered
  • 15 strands - Saffron
  • 1.5 cups - Sugar
  • 2 cups - water.
  • How to Make Rabdi Malpua:

    1. Boil the milk. After a boil, simmer and continue boiling till the milk reduces to little more than 1/2 litre (the consistency should be that of a rabdi). Strain it and cool.
    2. For the malpua:
    3. Take about 4 tbsp of the rabdi in a bowl, add one heaped tbsp of flour to it and mix well.
    4. Lightly heat 1.5 tbsp ghee on a non-stick tawa and pour the rabdi mixture.
    5. Spread it evenly in a circular shape, make sure the malpua is not too thin.
    6. Fry on a low flame, turning the malpua on both sides till it is golden in colour.
    7. Make the remaining malpuas in a similar way.
    8. For making syrup:
    9. On the adjoining gas burner, boil the water.
    10. Add sugar, cardamoms and saffron.
    11. Boil the water till you get a syrup of one-thread consistency.
    12. Soak the prepared malpuas in the sugar syrup.
    13. Serve.
