Tomorrow i am gonna make carrot burfi, custard powder halwa and jangri..No worries somehow i managed to take pictures of it. Will share them as soon as possible..


Sweet boondi was on my todo list for quite a long time. Finally i made it yesterday and it turned out to be perfect. I made kara boondi and boondi ladoo on the same day as well. 


I hope you will love this and let me know how it turns out for you..


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 20 mins
Makes - 2 to 2.5 cups

Ingredients:

Gram Flour / Kadalai mavu / Besan - 1 cup
Baking Soda / Cooking Soda - 1/8 tsp
Yellow Food Colouring - a pinch
Water - 1/2 cup + adjust accordingly
Oil for Deep Frying

For Sugar Syrup:

Sugar - 3/4 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Cardamom Powder / Yelakai Podi - 1 tsp
Cloves / Krambu - 1/2 tsp powdered
Yellow Food Colouring a pinch

For Seasoning:
Cashewnuts - 10 broken into small pieces
Sultanas / Kishmish - 15 pieces
Ghee - 1 tsp
Cloves / Krambu - 2

Method:

Take gram flour in a sifter and sieve it. Add in water and mix to a smooth batter. 

Add in water slowly and make it into a smooth batter. Now add in some baking soda and food colouring. Mix well. The batter should be little thick, it should be thinner than bajji batter. Make the batter perfectly then only you will get round boondi.

Now heat oil for deep frying.

Now take a boondi karandi or a perforated ladle. Hold it over oil. Pour a ladleful of batter over the karandi and spread it out. The boondis will fall drop by drop.

Fry the boondi till they are little crispy. Drain them and set aside.

Take sugar and water in a pan, mix well so it is melted. Bring it to a boil and cook till it attain a single string stage. When you take the spoon from the syrup and see, the last drop falling from the syrup form a single string like consistency.

At this point, take it off the heat and add in cardamom powder, clove powder, food colouring and mix well.

Add boondis to this syrup and mix well.

Now Heat ghee in a small pan, add in cashews and fry till it is light golden, add in raisans and fry till golden, add in cloves and mix well.

Pour this over the boondi and mix well.

Let this set for 2 to 3 hours untill it gets crystalized and nonsticky. Then Serve.

  1. Hi aarthi, just a small suggestion on this boondhi making. While preparing the batter, first check before you start pouring it into oil. Take a spoon and at the backside of spoon dip the batter and try dropping few drops in oil. If it is perfect balls then you have the perfect batter. Or else you need to add water into the batter and try the same trick. This works well when you need perfect round boondhi😃
    Hats off to your efforts for keeping this blog so interesting and. lively😃
