  2. Sift the besan flour 2 times in a bowl.Add powdered rava to it.
  3. Add the water one by one slowly into the besan flour mixture
  4. Don't add more water.It should be like dosa batter consistency! It must not be thinner or thicker batter.It should be of medium consistency and able to go through the hole of the ladle.
  5. Add food coloring to it and mix well.

For making Sugar Syrup:

  1. Take a medium wide saucepan,add the sugar and water to it on medium heat.
  2. Allow it to boil for about 10 to 15 mins till you get a single string when you press it between index finger and a thumb\\\\

  4. Make sure let it simmer on low heat  and stays warm.

For making boondi:

  1. Take a wide kadai and pour oil to it on medium high heat.
  2. Pour 1 tablespoons of batter to the perforated ladle facing on the kadai.
  3. Tap off the ladle using spoon gently and it will fall through the holes and let it fry for about 2 to 3 mins.
  4. Make sure it should not b crispy.It should be soft.
  5. Drain the prepared boondis on the tissue paper. 
  6. Repeat the same again and again till you finish the batter completely.

Let's start making laddoo:

  2. Add the warm sugar syrup to the boondi mixture.Mix well.Add 1 Tablespoon of boiling water to it.
  3. Transfer it into the blender.Pulse it for about 2 seconds.Make sure not to allow to get mashed up by pulsing it more than 2 seconds.
  4. Transfer it to the bowl.
  5. Once the mixture gets mixed up well.Smear the ghee with your hands.
  6. Make small bite size laddoos. It should be warm or little bit hot.If you tolerate the heat then it ll make perfect shaped balls.If it is cooled down then it is difficult to make into balls.Always make it to the warm or little bit hot boondi mixture to get form into balls.
  7. Garnish it with sliced almonds on the top of each and every laddoo.
  8. Serve it to God and enjoy having it with your family and friends
