To Make Boondhi :

  • Besan flour / GramFlour / Chickpea flour - 1 cup
  • Baking soda - 1 pinch
  • Water - As needed
  • oil - For Frying 
To Make Sugar Syrup:

  •  Sugar - 1 1/2 cup
  • Water - 1/4 cup
  • Cardamom pods - 2 no , Crushed


    In a Mixing Bowl add the Gram Flour ,  Baking soda , and Whisk . Now add the water and make it in to a batter without any lumps  like dosa Batter consistency ( Not too watery and  Not too thick )

    Heat oil in a Kadai , and take the Boondi making ladle and pour little batter on the ladle .


    The batter falls through the ladle hole in to the hot oil .

    Fry till the Boondi turns golden brown color .


    Drain on a paper towel and allow it to cool  a bit .

    Transfer this to the mixer and grind it to a coarse powder .

     In a heavy bottom pan add the sugar , crushed cardamon pods and add water so that the sugar is 
    completely immersed . Bring the sugar syrup to a boil till they come to " one String Consistency" .
    One String consistency is the thickness of the syrup must make one string between the thumb and index finger .

    Switch off once the one String consistency is reached , but still the sugar syrup should be warm when adding the boondi powder to it . Transfer the boondi powder to the sugar Syrup .

    Mix Well . Make small balls with the mixture and allow them to dry .

    Once dried , Store them in an airtight container and Use as desired .

    Yummy Boondi Laddo is ready to serve .

    Notes : 

    • The Boondi could be added to the sugar syrup directly without grinding in the mixer .
