Whole-Wheat Flour Malpua with Rabri is a delicious North Indian recipe which can be prepared using whole wheat flour, milk, fennel seeds, cinnamon sticks and honey.

Time: 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 5 cup low fat milk
  • 1 1/4 gm saffron
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppercorns
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 10 ml rose water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar free pellets
  • 1/4 teaspoon green cardamom
  • 1/4 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 inch cinnamon stick
  • For Garnishing
  • 12 gm pistachios
  • 1 silver vark
  • 12 gm almonds
  • 3 teaspoon dry rose petals


  • To prepare rabri, take a heavy bottomed pan and add milk in it. Place it on a medium flame and let it boil for a
  • while. Now, add sugar free pellets and cardamom powder and let it simmer over low flame. A layer of cream
  • will be formed on the surface. Push the layer towards the centre with the help of a wooden spatula.
  • Meanwhile, broil the saffron strands and add them to the milk. Repeat the process till 1/3 rd of the volume of
  • milk is left. Once the colour changes to off white, the cream will collect in layers. Chop the pistachios and
  • almonds in small pieces and garnish the thick cream layers. Remove from the flame and let it cool for a while.
  • To prepare the malpuas, take one cup water and add honey in it. After this, add cinnamon stick, saffron and
  • rose water. Place it on a medium flame and reduce it. Remove the cinnamon stick, once the water is reduced.
  • Pour this in a glass bowl and let it cool completely. Take a pan, add fennel seeds in it and dry roast it. Add
  • lightly roasted fennel seeds, crushed pepper corns, whole wheat flour and half cup water. Whisk the mixture
  • properly to attain a smooth batter.
  • In a hard anodized non-stick pan, pour a ladleful of this batter and cook on both the sides. Use a wooden
  • spatula to turn the malpuas so that they are cooked evenly on both the sides. Garnish the malpuas with silver
  • wark, chopped pistachios and almonds and serve along with rabri.
