हिंदी में पढ़ें – बूंदी लड्ड़ू

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup besan/ gram flour
  • ¾-1 cup water
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ tsp cardamom /elaichi powder
  • few strands of Saffron /kesar dissolved in 2 tbsp of water
  • 1 tbsp Ghee /clarified butter
  • dry fruits of your choice

Method:

  1. Seive Besan and mix with water.
  2. Start by adding ½ cup and then gradually increase the amount to reach the desired consistency.
  3. It should be pourable but not very dilute.
  4. I added almost 1 cup water.
  5. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
  6. You can prepare the sugar syrup in the meantime. In a pan put sugar and water to boil.
  7. When the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the flame to medium and cook till the sugar syrup reaches single string consistency.
  8. It will take around 7-8 minutes.
  9. Add Saffron mixture and cardamom powder to the sugar syrup.
  10. Get all the utensils ready.
  11. Heat oil in a kadai.
  12. Check it is hot or not by adding a single drop of besan mixture.
  13. If the drop sinks, oil is not ready and if it starts floating on oil, oil is ready.
  14. I used my left hand to hold the perforated spoon and right hand to pour the besan mixture.
  15. Take a ladle full of besan mixture and start pouring over a large round perforated spoon ( Jharni) so that boondis start falling in the oil.
  16. One ladle is enough at a time.
  17. Turn the flame to low immediately and fry the boondis.
  18. It should take around 1 minute.
  19. Remove the boondis from oil using another jharni and put them in the warm sugar syrup.
  20. Mix well.
  21. Wash the jharni used for pouring boondi after every batch and wipe dry with the help of cloth /paper towel (So that its holes do not become clogged).
  22. Repeat the same process to make more batches of boondi.
  23. When all the boondis are ready and mixed in the sugar syrup add ghee to it.
  24. Warm it a little bit if sugar has crystallized.
  25. Wait till the mixture is ready to be handled (it should still be a little warm for shaping Ladoos).
  26. Shape into balls with your hands.
  27. I made a small size so I got around 18 Ladoos.
  28. Store them in an air tight container.
