Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 1 cup besan
  2. 3/4+ 2 tbsp water
  3. 1 tbsp ghee

  6. For the Sugar Syrup:
  7. 1 cup sugar

  1. First add the besan, food colour, melted ghee and water together, mix it well to make a pouring consistency of batter.
  2. Now heat oil or ghee in a pan, take a chalni or boondi seiver and pour this batter in to it in pan.
  3. Fry these boondis but don't fry it too much as we don't want it golden or crispy in colour. Take them out from the pan and keep it aside. At this point we can crush the boondi in a mixer for small boondi ladoo as well.
  4. To make the sugar syrup, start by mixing the sugar water and food colour, elaichi powder and let it boil. When it is hot enough add the boondi and mix well.
  5. Then turn off the gas and cover it, let the boondi absorb the sugar syrup for atleast 1 hour. Now add the chopped nuts as per your choice and make ladoos out of it.
  6. Garnish it with almonds, pista, kesar and cardamom seeds.
