Boondi Laddoo An Indian Traditional Sweet

Dear Friends 

I had chosen to make an Indian Traditional sweet as my mom used to make it.It is our favorite one and I never tried out at home.It was so good after made boondi laddoo as my hands was full smeared in ghee while making into balls.It was fun and little bit time consuming while making boondis. It is famous in all occasions. Here is the ingredients as below.Make it and enjoy with your family and friends 


For Making Boondis:

  • 1 cup Besan flour.
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • Oil to deep fry
For Making Syrup:
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder]
For Garnish:
  • 1/4 cup Ghee 
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup cashewnuts
  • A Handful of raisins
  • Cloves for each laddoo while you make into ball.(optional)


For Making Boondis

  • In a medium pan.Add 2 Tablespoons of ghee to it.Roast the cashew nuts till it tuns light brown in color. Transfer into the plate.
  • Add the raisins  in the remaining ghee pan and roast till it gets puff. Turn off the heat.Keep aside.
  • Take a wide bowl, sieve the besan flour to avoid any particles for two times.
  • Pour water little by little to get thin consistency which will help to go thru the hole of the ladle.
  • Take a kadai, pour oil and place it on medium heat. Once it is hot and keep check while add little besan flour batter to it  and it comes out up and forms bubbles it is ready.
  • Place the ladle on the kadai and pour few spoonfuls of batter to it. and tap gently. The batter goes thru the holes  and allow it to cook until it is light brown in color.
  • Take out the boondis and place it on the tissue paper plate. keep going until the batter is finished.
  • Meanwhile add the sugar and water for making syrup on medium heat.Allow it to boil until it has reached boiling stage. reduce to low flame and make sure the syrup is warm. Add cardamom powder.
  • Transfer the prepared boondis after oil is absorbed into the sugar syrup. mix well with spoon.
  • Add cashew nuts and raisins into it.Mix well.
  • Keep this on low heat and make into balls with the help of the remaining ghee smeared on your hands.
  • While making laddoo balls...insert one clove in each and every laddoo. 
  • Place the laddoos on the serving plate.

  1. Make sure the syrup is warm and make the balls as much as fast.
  2. If the syrup is cooled then cannot make into balls.It will be hard.
  3. Store the laddoos in an air tight container.

Enjoy!!! Happy Cooking!
