BOONDI LADOO| HOW TO MAKE BOONDI LADOO|DIWALI SWEET RECIPE | LADOO RECIPE WITH VIDEO

  Boondi Ladoo , we make for every diwali in my in laws place, but after coming to Singapore i never attempted on my own, since i don’t have the proper boondi ladle(jarini, we call in tamil). But later one day, when i was talking to my mom, she told that we can make with the perforated ladle we normally use for deep frying snacks. So i attempted with that and it was a great success. I want to give a note in this post, if you think making ladoo is a complicated thing, just erase all your misconceptions and go ahead of making yummy ladoos. Here Comes the recipe of boondi ladoo.

Boondi ladoo
  My mom’s sister shared the recipe with me and i have followed few tips from vah chef and mallika badrinath cookbook.
PREPARATION TIME : 15 MINUTES COOKING TIME: 30 MINUTES MAKES:12- 15 LADOOS

INGREDIENTS:
BESAN | BENGAL GRAM FLOUR 1 AND 1/4 CUP
COOKING SODA(BI CARBONATE OF SODA) A PINCH
SUGAR 1 AND 1/2 CUP
WATER(TO MAKE SUGAR SYRUP) 1/2 CUPminus1 TBLSP
OIL FOR DEEP FRYING THE BOONDI
FINELY CHOPPED CASHEW NUTS 1 TBLSP
CLOVES 3-4
CARDAMOM POWDER A PINCH
GHEE 1 TSP
YELLOW FOOD COLOUR A PINCH(OPTIONAL)

Boondi ladoo

METHOD:
  • Sieve the besan without any lumps. Add the cooking soda to this.Add the yellow food colour (if using). I didn’t use as my besan always gives a nice yellow colour.
  • Mix the besan with water to make a batter of dosa batter consistency.

  • While adding water to the besan , first add a small amount of water and make it into a thick paste.
  • Then add the rest of the water. the amount of water for 1 and 1/4 cup of besan is approximately 3/4 cup of water. This purely depends upon the texture of the besan.
  • Fry the cashew nuts and cloves in a tsp of ghee and keep it aside.

  • For making the sugar syrup, mix the sugar with the given amount of water  in a heavy bottomed vessel.
  • Heat till the sugar gets dissolved stirring in between.
  • Once sugar gets dissolved stop stirring and boil till this reach one string consistency.
  • You can check the one thread  consistency of the syrup between the thumb and the index finger.

  • Switch off the flame at this stage and heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan to fry boondis.
  • To check whether the  consistency is right for the batter, take a spoon and with the back of the spoon mix the batter well and just hold it on the top of the hot oil.
  • If this forms a nice round ball then the consistency if perfect, else it gives a tail you need to add little extra water. Add 1 tblsp and check again.
  • If this forms a very thin roundels then the water is more, just add one tblsp of besan to this and check again.
  • Now the batter is ready for boondis.

  • You need 2 perforated ladle for making this. The ladle with small holes to make boondi and another one to take out the boondis from oil.
  • Pour a ladle of batter to the perforated ladle ,keeping the ladle on the top of the oil and  let the boondis falls into the oil.
  • When it is half fried take it out from the oil and trasfer it to the sugar syrup.

  • Repeat the process for the the remaining batter.
  • While repeating , wipe out the excess batter from the top and back of the ladle used for making boondi. This will help in getting round shape.
  • I remember my grand mom washes the ladle for each batch and wipe with a dry cloth.

  • Add the fried cahew nuts, cloves and elachi powder to the boondi sugar mixture.
  • Mix this well with the back side of the ladle.

  • When it is luke warm make balls of desired shapes and store this in a airtight container.

Note:
  • The sugar syrup should be warm while putting the boondis in that.
  • Make balls when this is luke warm, else the sugar will be crystalised and ladoos can not be formed.
  • The ladoo ,if handled properly can be stored for 7 days in the room temperature.
  • Always use good quality sugar and mineral water| drinking water for making the syrup.
  • Do not touch ladoos with wet hands.
  • Do not use water ,if you don’t get balls.this will make a fungal layer on the ladoo.
  • If for any reason you dont able to make balls, just make 2 tbslp of sugar syrup of pur this over the boondis and make ladoos.

    1. if you can't make balls, just enjoy as boondi instead of making ladoos. It is quite difficult to make ladoos with that

  44. i have agonized for years - literally - over making ladoos. i'm not indian - my hubbie is from trinidad, however, and he's.... "very conscious of his cultural roots" (i'll put it nicely).

    i've given up on cooking indian food - he's a chef and there's no way i can get it right (what tastes fine to my white-bread canadian tastebuds is totally inedible - told him he keeps it up, we'll find out how wearable it is, lol). but baking? he can't touch me.

    i used your recipe because it was the friendliest and seemed the most accessible and understandable and it worked!!!

    had to improvise a bit - no besan, so i threw a bunch of dried chickpeas in the food processor, set it to run, and then went on facebook. when i was bored with facebook, i shut the machine off and sifted out the big bits and had *exactly* the right amount of besan! i know! kismet, right?

    didn't have the right ladle, either, so i used a metal colander. the hole were a lot smaller so i used a rubber spatula to wipe the batter over the holes and push it through.

    oh - and i added a whack of honey to the sugar syrup.

    that was all last night and now there are no ladoos left, thanks to my hubbie, my daughter, and her friend from up the road.

    excuse me - must find more chickpeas (i'll use dahl if i can't find any more channa).
