  5. Heat ghee in a non-stick pan. Pour a ladle full of batter, spread to make a small thin disc and cook till evenly golden on both sides. This is malpua. Similarly make other malpuas.
  6. Drain the malpuas from the ghee and soak in sugar syrup for 5 minutes.
  7. Drain them from the sugar syrup and serve immediately topped with some cottage cheese, almonds and pistachios and remaining cardamom powder.
