Mawa Rajgira Malpua

Mawa Rajgira Malpua is a sweet traditional Indian dessert made with amaranth flour (rajgira flour), mawa (milk solids), ghee, and sugar. It is a popular dish during festivals, and it’s a variation of the traditional Malpua, which is made with wheat flour. The addition of mawa (milk solids) provides a rich and creamy texture to the malpua, while the amaranth flour adds a unique nutty flavor.

Here is a basic recipe for making Mawa Rajgira Malpua:


  • 1 cup Rajgira flour (amaranth flour)
  • 1/2 cup grated mawa (milk solids)
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Oil for frying


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the Rajgira flour, grated mawa, ghee, sugar, cardamom powder, and water. Mix everything together until a smooth batter is formed.
  2. Heat oil in a deep pan or kadhai over medium heat.
  3. Using a ladle, drop spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil.
  4. Fry the malpua until they are golden brown and crispy on both sides.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, remove the malpua from the oil and drain them on a paper towel.
  6. Serve the Mawa Rajgira Malpua warm with rabri or any sweet syrup.
  7. Enjoy!

Note: You can adjust the amount of sugar as per your taste preference. Also, you can add some saffron or rose water to give it a nice aroma.
