How to Make Boondi Ke Laddoo

  • Make a batter using rice flour, besan or chana dal atta, baking soda, kesar powder with water to a thick pouring consistency.

  • Add the fried boondis to the sugar syrup and keep mixing. Repeat this procedure till all the batter is exhausted. Leave the mix for 4 to 5 hours. Drain the boondis.
  • Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan. Fry kishmish(raisins), kaju and cloves. Add this to boondis.
  • Fry the cloves separately and powder them and add if you don't like it whole. Add 1tsp of elaichi powder and sugar cubes(small).
  • Make ladoos of desired size and store in an airtight box.
