You may have tried many types of malpua at home or relative’s house or may be at sweets shop too then you must admit that some people prefer only wheat flour made malpua whereas some people prefer suji & refined wheat flour (maida) made crispy suji malpua. Traditional malpua recipes are mostly same but still, there is an option to try something better, so taste various malpua to find something which one you like most.
Ratio of all purpose flour (maida) and semolina/suji plays an important role. So you can make this crispy suji malpua at home and work on its ratio and try which ratio suits you to make your preferred sooji malpua. This recipe is quite similar to bengali style sooji malpua.
