Boondi Ladoos

Kapoor Sanjeev, June 4, 2014

Serving Size: 14 ladoos


  1. Besan Flour(Kadalai Maavu) – 1 cup
  2. Water – 1/2 to 3/4 cup(adjust to get a flowing batter)
  3. Cooking soda – a very tiny pinch(mustard size)
  4. Cloves – 2
  5. Yellow food color – a tiny pinch
  6. Cardamom – 2 powdered
  7. Cloves – 2 powdered
  8. Cashews – 1/2 tbsp broken
  9. Sugar Candy – 15
  10. Raisins – 1/2 tbsp
  11. Edible camphor – a very tiny pinch
  12. Oil – to deep fry


To make the sugar syrup:

  1. Sugar – 1 and 1/2 cups
  2. Water – 3/4 cup(sugar should be just immersed so adjust accordingly)



  1. In a pan – add a tsp of ghee and fry add cashews fry till slightly browned then add raisins and fry till golden brown,powder cloves and elachi using hand mortar and pestle,keep aside.Sieve besan flour with soda and transfer it to a mixing bowl.Add water little by little to form a thick paste.


  1. Then add more water to form a flowing batter, then add  yellow color.We need 2 laddles for making boondhi : one for making the boondhis and another for draining them from oil.Here is where we need to be very careful. If the batter consistency is not perfect the balls will not be round and it will have tails.To check if the batter is in correct consistency : First take a spoon and dip the backside of the spoon into batter and hold it on top of the preheated oil. If it drops as perfect rounds then the batter is perfect.Pour one ladle of batter over the ladle with the hole holding it just above the oil .



  1. It will drip down by itself, you can even spread it using the laddle in circular motion(like we make dosa) for quicker process.Turn over to cook on both sides evenly.It should not be crispy just cooked.


  1. Wipe off the boondi laddle with a cloth for each batch.Alternatively you can wash the boondi laddle and wipe it clean and then start the next batch.Repeat to finish the entire batter.Simultaneously, In a broad vessel first add sugar with water till immersing level and heat it up.Check for single string consistency ie If you take a drop between your thumb and index finger you can see a single string forming as shown below in the 1st thumbnail – thats the right consistency,Set aside.



  1. Drain the boondis in a tissue and immediately add it to the prepared warm sugar syrup.Once you add all the boondis add fried cashews,raisins,edible camphor,cardamom powder,cloves powder and sugar candy.Mix it wellWhen its still warm enough to handle with your hands shape them into ladoos.I didnt grease my hands, just squeeze and press tight to shape the ladoos.The syrup and oil will squeeze out while pressing which helps the ladoos becoming moist, but after the sugar crystallises it will become dry.


  1. Store in an airtight container and enjoy your homemade sweet boondi ladoos!
