For making malpua you need to take a thick bottomed pan and add sugar and water. Heat till sugar dissolves. Now add cardamom powder and saffron and cook for 5 mins till you reach a sticky sugar syrup consistency. Close lid and keep aside. Meanwhile in a separate bowl, add flour, semolina, fennel powder and cardamom powder and mix well. Now start adding milk and stir till it reaches to a flowing consistency. Keep aside the batter to rest for 30 mins. Now heat oil or ghee in a shallow pan. Once the oil is nicely hot pour in 3/4 ladle of the batter into it. The batter will automatically spread and flatten like a disk. Fry from both sides till golden in color. Carefully remove the fried malpua from oil and drop it into the prepared sugar syrup. Similarly make more malpuas from the remaining batter and allow them to rest in the syrup for 10-15 mins before serving. Plate them and garnish with chopped nuts. Serve it hot or warm.
