DIRECTIONS

  • pan, mix 2 cups of water and 2 cups of sugar and boil. The syrup is ready when you get a single-thread consistency. The way to test this is to stir the syrup with a spoon, lift the spoon out and carefully touch the syrup on it with your index finger.
  • Press your index finger and thumb together and gently pull apart. The sugar will stretch to form a single 'thread'. If this happens the syrup is ready. If not keep boiling and test occasionally till done.
  • When the syrup is ready add the cardamom powder and mix well. Keep the syrup aside to use later.
  • In a large mixing bowl, blend the dry milk, flour,funnel seed and baking powder together to form a smooth batter.
  • While you are mixing the batter, heat enough oil in a deep frying pan to cook the malpuas.
  • When the oil is hot, use a ladle to gently pour the batter into the oil to form circles about 4" in diameter.
  • Cook till golden brown. Remove from the oil and put directly into the sugar syrup.
  • Remove after 2-3 minutes and drain on a wire rack with a plate underneath to catch the dripping syrup.and garnish with slivered nuts.
