Nanak Ki Malhar is a form of Malhar. It is an aprachalit raag.

Raag Malhar is 27th Raag to appear in the raag wise collection of Shabads in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Malhar is a raag of rainy season.

The chalan of this raga goes like this: m g R g m g R S. In Nanak Ki Malhar (Like Megh Malhar) the swars in Aroh go like this: m P n n N N S’ because dhawat is absent the combination of both the nishads are shown together umpteen times.
