How to make Boondi Ladoo

  1. For Besan Batter
  2. In a bowl, sieve besan.
  3. Add water gradually to make a smooth flowing batter. First add 1 cup water and whisk well. Then if you find the batter thick, add more water as required. Quantity of water will depend on the type of besan.
  4. Keep the batter aside for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Now add ghee and pinch of baking soda. Whisk well and keep the batter aside.
  6. For sugar syrup
  7. In a pan, take 2 cups of sugar and to it add 1 cup of water. Cook on a medium flame for 2-3 minutes. Then add few drops of lemon juice to the syrup, to prevent it from getting crystallised.
  8. Mix well and keep boiling till you attain syrup of 1 string consistency.
