1. When you fry malpuas, if you see them disintegrating in the oil, then the batter is too thin and add more flour to make it thick.
2. If the batter is too thick then the malpua will be denser, so add more milk.
3. The sugar syrup doesn’t need to boil for longer. If you let it cook longer then the sugar will crystalize. Let the syrup boil till it gets little thick and sticky.
