Serves: 10 People
  • 1 1/2 cup gram flour (besan)
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cup ghee
  • 2 pinches saffron
  • 1/2 teaspoon green cardamom
  • 8 almonds

How to Cook Sweet Boondi :

  1. Combine the sugar and 1 1/2 cup of water in a broad non-stick pan, mix well and cook on a high flame for about 5-7 minutes or till the sugar syrup is of 1 thread consistency. Once sugar is dissolved completely and the syrup becomes a little sticky, put off the flame and keep aside.
  2. Sieve gram flour in a vessel and occasionally add water to it. Add saffron, soaked in 1 tablespoon of water. Make sure that the batter doesn’t get too thin and no lumps are formed. Now heat ghee in a pan over medium flame, hold a perforated spoon a little above the hot ghee and pour some gram flour batter on the spoon. Allow small droplets to fall in the ghee by tapping the edge of the spoon lightly.
  3. Stir and deep fry the boondis in the ghee gently and fry till crisp but not brown. Take out the boondi on a clean kitchen towel or paper towel to drain off the excess oil. Now put the boondi in the sugar syrup and keep it for 5 minutes before taking out from the syrup.
  4. Chop the almonds using a knife and make a smooth powder of cardamom by grinding. Keep them aside in separate bowls. Take a wide plate and spread the boondis on it, garnish it by adding cardamom powder and chopped almonds and mix gently.
  5. Allow to cool completely and loosen the boondi with finger till each droplet separates. Boondi can be eaten fresh, or can be stored in an airtight container to serve later.
