Boil water with the sugar. Stir continuously until the solution thickens. Remove from fire and keep aside.
Sieve the flour. Mix cardamom powder in the flour and knead with warm water to make a fine dough. Make small balls and flatten it into rounds, squares or triangular shapes.
Heat ghee or oil in a pan and deep fry the prepared rounds till it puffs out. Allow oil to drain. Keep this in the sugar solution for some time. Decorate with almonds and pistachios.
