Sweet Boondi

Boondi is a easy to prepare, quick snack for diwali..We can make it in different colours, as served in weddings or can stick with basic yellow color..I made yellow and orange..would like to add green too next time..I'm preparing this under desserts for BM#57..Do give it a try fo rthis diwali and you will like it for it's simplicity and taste..


Besan/Kadali Maavu2 cup
Water as needed
Sugar1 cup
Baking sodaa pinch
Cashews2 tsp
raisins1 tsp
Edible campor1 pinch
Cardamom powder1/2 tsp
Oilas needed
Kalkandu(optional)1 tsp

Take sugar in a heavy bottom vessel and add little water just to immerse it...Heat it till one string consistency is reached...When you touch it and separate the fingers one thread should form...Keep it in lowest flame possible..

Take besan flour in 2 bowls and sieve it one without color and one with orange colour...Add a pinch of baking soda and water....

Mix it without any lumps into bajji batter consistency...Don't make it watery..if so tails will form in boondi..


Take a wide bottom pan and heat oil in it...Pour the 2 batters in batches on the boondi ladle using a spoon and spread it with the spoon....Fry till boondis become slightly crisp...If we move the boondis using a ladle, neru neru sound will come...

Take out the boondis and sit it a minute in sieve to remove excess oil...Add it to the warm syrup and mix....

Similarly make batches of boondi and add to the syrup...

After finishing the boondis, add edible campor, fried cashews,raisins and cardamom powder...
