Salt a pinch
Baking soda  a pinch
Ghee - 1 tspn

2) Now add enough water to form a smooth  dough. Mix it really well and keep aside for 5 - 10 mins

Making the syrup
3) In the meanwhile, take a vessel and add sugar and water just enough to cover the sugar and bring it to a boil.
4) Add cardamom powder and keep in simmer till you can get a one thread consistency of the syrup and switch off the stove.

Making the Puris
5) Take the dough and make small lemon sized  balls and roll out small puris and  fold it in the center to make it a semi circle and fold it again to make another half. Continue to do this for the rest of the puri's

6)Roll the puris as usual, and make 3 slits on the puris lengthwise. (Make sure you dont slit too long)
7) Now roll them width wise and them as shown in the picture.
8) Heat oil in a frying pan and fry these in the oil.
9) Now, drop these fried puris into the sugar syrup and turn them to coat all the areas with syrup and take them in a plate.
10) Once they come to room temperature the sugar gets nicely quoted and will be very crispy and tasty to eat.

1) You can garnish the puris with badam powder.
2) Dip the puris in a bowl of badam milk and serve cold or warm .
