Boondi laddoo is the most common sweet and yet complicated to make. Sravana masam is here and so is the season of vrathams. Boondi laddoo is one of the sweets generally made as a part of the festivities.
Preparation time: 35-45 mins
(Besan/senagapindi) 1 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Cardamom powder 1tsp
A ladle with holes/ stainer.
Refined cooking oil 1 cup
To make boondi, mix the chick peas flour with water to make a dough of dosa dough consistency.
Heat oil in a kadai/pan. Hold the ladle/stainer over the pan. Drop the dough over the ladle so that it shall fall through the ladles in the form of small drops. Remove the boondi immediately.
Instead of the above method, boondi readily available in the market can also be used.
In another vessel, make semi-liquid syrup of sugar by heating water and adding the cup of sugar to it. Add a tsp of cardamom powder and a few raisins.
Add the boondi to the sugar syrup and mix well. Leave to cool and make balls of the mixture.
Boondi laddoo is done. Sweet and munchy, boondi laddoo is an all time favorite of any and everyone.
