Boondhi ladoo is a delicious sweet which is made for special occasions such as diwali and other festivals.My mom makes excellent and perfect ladoos and here is the recipe...
|Cooking soda||a pinch|
|Food colors(green,red,orange)||a pinch|
Sieve the besan and mix it with salt,cooking soda and make a batter with water.The batter should not be too thin or too thick,should be in a dropping consistency.Divide the batter to three equal portions and mix each color in each divided portion.(its optional).
Heat a pan with oil in a medium heat and hold the boondi ladle and pour some batter and tap the ladle slightly.The batter will start dropping into the oil and fry it for a while,no need to get crispy.Drain it in a paper towel.Continue for the rest of the batter.
Mix the sugar with one cup of water and allow it to boil till it becomes thick should be half string consistency,and little sticky.Turn off the stove and let it becomes warm.Now add in the fried boondhi,fried cashews and cardamom powder,mix it well.Let it soak for 10-15 minutes.
Once all the syrup is absorbed by the boondhi,take a fistful of boondhi and press it gently,shape it to a round ball and arrange it in on a plate.
Ladoo is ready to enjoy.
- Each time wipe the back of the boondhi ladle with a tissue paper or towel to get a perfect shape.
- Cloves,melon seeds can be added for extra flavor and rich taste.
- If the suar syrup consistency reached one string or more,add little hot water to adjust the consistency.
