Boondi Ladoo is an Indian dessert/sweet/mithai made with chickpea flour, sugar syrup, and nuts. It is most popularly made during important Indian festivals and religious holidays like Diwali, Ganesh Chaturthi, and others.
Ingredients (For Boondi)
- 2 Cups Besan (Gram Flour)
- 2 Cups Water
- 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
Ingredients (For Sugar Syrup)
- 2 Cups Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Water
Ingredients (Other Ingredients)
- 2 Tablespoons Ghee
- 1/2 Cup Cashews
- 1/4 Cup Raisins
- 1/2 Teaspoon Cardamom Powder
Take 2 cups of chickpeas flour in a bowl and add 2 cups of water slowly. Make a smooth batter with any lumps. Add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and mix well.
Heat oil in a Kadai and make Boondi. Pour 1 ladle of batter into the Boondi Jhara with another ladle to help the batter drop off easily to the hot oil.
As soon as the Boondi is dropped, a lot of bubbles come up. Once the bubbles begin to reduce, take the Boondi out. DON'T MAKE IT CRUNCHY.
Heat 2 tablespoons of ghee and add 1/2 cup cashews, 1/4 cup raisins. Fry the nuts for 2 minutes and keep them aside.
In a pot, add 2 cups of sugar and add 1/2 cups of water.
Mix until all the sugar dissolves and boil it for approximately 3 minutes. Take water in a bowl and check the sugar consistency. Sugar should become a softball.
Add cardamom powder, fried nuts to the boondi and mix well.
Add sugar syrup and mix well until all the sugar absorbs to the boondi.
Leave it aside for 2 minutes. Apply little water to your hands and make ladoos.
Keep the ladoos on open air for 30 minutes and enjoy.
