In a large bowl, combine flour, food colour and salt. Add water and make a soft dough(like chappati).Keep covered for 20 minutes.
Now prepare sugar syrup or chashni. Add 1 cup of water to 1 cup of sugar. Bring it to boil. Keep boiling till you get a thread like consistency. Add cardamom powder and keep aside.
Make small lemon size balls out of the dough and keep them covered. Dust the working surface with little flour. Take a ball and roll into round shape. Smear ghee on the surface.
Now fold it into half and again half. It should look like a triangle. Then press lightly with a rolling pin. Follow the same procedure for the remaining balls.
Heat oil in a frying pan,dip prepared triangular puris one by one. Deep fry in a medium flame till golden brown.
As soon as you take out from the oil, dip it in the sugar syrup. Let the syrup cover all side. Remove with the help of tongs and keep aside on the plate. Decorate with grated dry coconut and chopped nuts on the top of each puri.
