KARA BOONDHI RECIPE

   Kara boondhi i made for this diwali and wanted to post the recipe before that. I made this to put it in mixture. But somehow, i couldn’t get time to post this before diwali. Again i am making mixture for my in laws as i am visiting them shortly. Will post the madras mixture recipe soon. Now i am sharing the recipe of Kara boondhi

kara boondhi

INGREDIENTS:

BESAN | KADALAI MAAVU| GRAM FLOUR 1 CUP
RICE FLOUR 3 TBLSP
RED CHILLI POWDER 1 TSP
SALT AS NEEDED
BAKING SODA A PINCH
OIL FOR DEEP FRYING
CURRY LEAVES FEW
ASAFOETIDA 2 PINCHES
CASHEW NUTS 7-8 NO(OPTIONAL)
PEANUTS FEW(OPTIONAL)
KARA BOONDHI

METHOD:

  • Combine both the flour in a bowl. Add salt, asafoetida, and red chilli powder to this.
  • Add water to this to make this into a dosa batter consistency.
  • Add the baking soda and mix well.
flour batter

  • While adding water to the besan , first add a small amount of water and make it into a thick paste. The amount of water depends upon the texture of besan.
  • Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying. when the oil becomes hot, just pour 2 tblsp of hot oil to the batter and mix well.
  • 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.
consistency perfect
  • 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.
  • Fry till the oil sound subsides. Then only we can get crispy boondis.
  • take out from oil and drain it in a kitchen towel.
pour batter drain

  • Repeat this for rest of the batter.
  • Wipe of the ladle every time when you pour the batter.

wipe off

  • When it is done transfer everything to a wide bowl and deep fry the curry leaves , cashew nuts and peanuts(if adding) in the hot oil till the cashew turn into a nice golden brown color. Fry everything separately.
  • Mix well.
