Boondi Ladoo: Recipe

A bit tedious to make, but one of my favourite Indian sweet (mithai) recipes for the festive season, specially Diwali.

Ingredients :


2 cups gram flour(besan)

2 cups ghee

3/4 cups sugar

2 tbsp finely chopped almonds

1/2 tsp elaichi powder

A pinch of saffron colour


Mix besan with just enough water to make a thick batter. Add colour.  Blend well. Heat ghee. Through a sieve, gently put drops into the hot ghee. Fry till dark golden and drain out. Repeat process till batter is finished. Put aside the fried drops or boondi. For syrup, heat sugar with 3/4 cup water and make a sticky syrup. Add fried boondi, almonds, cardamom powder and mix well. While still warm, shape the syrup-coated boondi into round ladoos, and leave to cool and dry.
