    Here are the Steps:

    Sift the Flour

    • Firstly, in a bowl, take almond flour.
    • Use a sieve to sift the flour so that no lumps are left.

    Prepare the Batter

    • To begin with, add a cup of table cream /coconut milk or coconut cream to the almond flour.
    • Crush fennel seeds and add them to the mixture. And whisk well until smooth and all ingredients are well incorporated.
    • If the batter feels thick, add milk which is the best calcium source to get the right consistency.
    • In the meantime, you can preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    Prepare the Sugar-free Syrup for Malpua

    • The first step is to boil two cups of water in a pan.
    • Then, add a pinch of kesar (saffron) and 2-3 cardamom pods.
    • Now, add the swerve/stevia or date syrup sweetener of your choice.
    • Bring the mixture to a boil.
    • Allow the mixture to thicken a bit on a low flame.

    Make the Pancakes

    • Firstly, heat a griddle and brush it with desi ghee.
    • Pour a batter onto the griddle. 
    • Again, cook them at a medium to low temperature.
    • When pancakes start turning brown around the edges, flip them.
    • Let both sides brown before transferring each malpua to a greased baking dish.

    Bake Until Crispy

    • Now bake the pancakes/malpuas until they are crispy. 
    • The process took just 6-7 minutes in a preheated oven.

    Note: Also, you can skip baking if you like a soft malpua.

    Dip in Syrup

    • Turn off the flame and allow the syrup to cool a bit.
    • Then, dip the hot and crispy malpua in the warm syrup and allow them to stay for a minute.
    • Place them on a platter. Also, you can garnish malpua with chopped nuts and saffron.
    • In addition, if you want you can serve it with extra syrup.
