Reserve two tablespoons of sugar and form one-string sugar syrup with the rest of the sugar and two cups of water.
Dissolve saffron in a teaspoon of hot milk. Add it to the sugar syrup.

Heat sufficient ghee in a wide mouthed flat-bottomed kadai. Pour a ladle full of batter to form a pancake. Cook on slow to medium heat. Turn it over when it starts to colour slightly.
When both sides are done, drain and immerse in the sugar syrup. Garnish with pistachios and serve hot.

For rabri -

Mix the milk and 1 cup of sugar in a thick bottomed pan, cook to reduce it to a fourth of its original volume while stirring frequently, remove it from the fire allow cooling and chilling in the refrigerator. your rabri is ready now ether you mix it with batter or serve with malpua .

* some time I use rabari instead of koya ,  making malpua's with rabri really makes a noticeable difference in taste , at some special occasion's you can try this trick also

** serving malpua's with rabri is also a superb idea .
