Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. besan - 1 cup
  2. Rice flour - 2 tablespoon
  3. Cooking Soda - a pinch
  4. Food Colour (Red and Yellow) - 2 drops each
  5. Water - 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup + 1/2 cup for sugar Syrup
  6. Refined oil - 2 cups
  7. sugar - 1 cup
  8. cardamom - 2


  1. Take water and sugar in a pan and boil to dissolve it. While boiling add cardamom seeds to get a nice aroma.
  2. Now take besan, rice flour and cooking soda in a bowl. Make a smooth batter adding water into it. Batter should not be runny and it should not have any lumps.
  3. Take a small portion of the batter and add red color into it. In the remaining large portion, add yellow colour. This step is absolutely optional.
  4. Now heat oil in a kadai. Take a perforated ladle (In Bengali, we call it chanta). Hold the ladle just top of the oil. Add little batter into it and rotate over the oil so that drops come out from the each perforation. Fry them.
  5. Allow the boondis to soak sugar syrup for 30 minutes to one hour and later serve it.
