  • Besan (chickpea flour)- 1 cup (200 grams)
  • Water- 1/2 cup (100 ml)
  • Orange food color- a pinch (optional)
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Sugar- 1 cup (200 grams)
  • Water- 1/2 cup (100 ml)
  • Cardamom powder (elaichi)-1/4 teaspoon

  • First prepare the sugar syrup.
  • Boil 1/2 cup water in a pan & add 1 cup sugar to it.

  • Add cardamom powder to it & boil it on medium high heat.
  • Sugar syrup has to be of one string consistency.
  • This will take around 7 minutes.

  • In the meantime, prepare the batter for the boondi.
  • Take besan (chickpea flour) in a pan & add 1/4 cup water to it.
  • Beat them really well to break all the lumps.

  • Now add the rest 1/4 cup water to this batter & mix well.
  • If you are adding orange food color, then add it to the batter at this stage.
  • The batter should be of a pouring consistency just like cake batter.

  • Sugar syrup must be ready by now.
  • Turn off the flame & keep it aside.
  • We will add hot boondis to this sugar syrup.
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Use a perforated spoon to make boondis.

  • Hold the spoon 2 inches above the hot oil.
  • Add some batter on this spoon & tap the spoon gently.
  • Boondis will fall in this hot oil.
  • Deep fry them till they turn golden in color & still soft.
  • Don't fry them too much as they will turn crispy otherwise.

  • Take them out from the hot oil on a paper towel & transfer them to the sugar syrup when still hot as they will absorb the sugar syrup easily.
  • Make boondis using all the batter & transfer to the sugar syrup.

  • When still warm, grease your hands with a little ghee & make round laddus using these boondis.
  • Don't let it cool down, as the sugar crystallizes & then it will be difficult to make the laddus.
  • You can grind them coarsely if you want smaller boondis.
  • Allow them to cool down.
  • Store them in an air tight container.
  • Boondi laddu is ready to serve.
