How to make Boondi Laddu

  1. Method of making sugar syrup:
  2. Take sugar in a pan and add water into it.Keep this solution on low heat. Let the sugar melt completely. After the sugar gets dissolved, cook till you will get the one thread consistency.
  3. One thread consistency means the sugar syrup should reach the single thread stage.
  4. The sugar syrup should be hot when you add boondis, so you have to fry the boondis and prepare the sugar syrup side by side, if boondis are not hot then it will be difficult to bind.
  5. Method of making boondi and how to bind boondis to form a laddu.
  6. Take gram flour, saffron and food colour in a bowl.
  7. Add little water to make a smooth batter until all lumps are dissolved. The consistency of batter is very important.
  8. Heat oil in a pan. Whisk the besan mixture and then place it above the hot oil.And then tap the wired whisk which onto the hot oil. Do this process again and again.
  9. Do not keep the wired whisk too much on height.
  10. Do not overcook otherwise it will be crispy but not soft.And if boondis are not soft they wont be able to absorb the sugar syrup.
  11. Strain them with a slotted spoon and keep on a plate.
  12. Add fried boondis directly to the hot sugar syrup. Fry all boondis like above mentioned way and add to the hot sugar syrup.
  13. Add ghee, black cardamom seeds, pistachios and cashew nuts in the sugar syrup and mix well all ingredients in syrup for 5-10, so that the boondi absorbs the syrup properly.
  14. Wet your hands with some ghee and take 2-3 tablespoons mixture on hand and shape the laddu.
  15. Keep the laddus open air for 2-3 hours to get dry.
  16. Your delicious Boondi Laddus are ready.
