Boondi Ladoo and Happy Diwali



Boondi ladoo

Happy Diwali to all my friends and readers!Wish you all a happy and prosperous Diwali....a year filled with prosperity, success and joy!
I know every one are in a festive spirit and to celebrate Diwali I made these ladoos.Boodi ladoo is one of the most popular Indian sweet.It is part of temple poojas, festive occasions and a must for Indian weddings.  Boondi ladoo is one sweet that I never get tired of! Love this since childhood and I still enjoy this divine sweet. This is my first attempt to make them at home. For me the boondi making part was easy, but I guess shaping the ladoos needs more patience and practice. Try this for Diwali,you will surely love it.

Ingredients
Gram flour-1 1/2 cup
Salt -a pinch
Baking soda- a pinch
Water- approximately 3/4 cup

Syrup
Sugar- 2 1/2 cup
Water- 1 1/3 cup
Food color- a few drops(Optional)
Cardamon- 4-5
Clove crushed-2

Garnish
Ghee- 3 tbs
Cashew nut and raisins - a few
Kalkandu/rock candy- 2 tbs(optional)



Mix sugar and water and bring it to boil. Allow this to simmer and attain one thread consistency. Add food color,cardamon and crushed clove and keep this syrup warm.
Meanwhile sieve gram flour and mix salt,baking soda  and water. Add water little by little. It should not be too thick or too thin(running batter consistency).
Heat oil in a wide pan,approximately 3 cups. When the oil is hot take spoon fulls of batter and pour into a slotted spoon positioned just above the oil. Do not position it too high or the batter will not drop as small pearl round. Gently tap the slotted soon with you hands and the batter will drop through the holes of the laddle into the oil. Fry them till it is cooked and slightly golden and drain into paper towels. Continue to fry in batches.
Add these fried boondis into warm syrup and mix.
Heat ghee in a pan and fry raisins and cashew nuts and add this too along with rock candy. Allow this to cool a bit,take handfuls and shape into small balls.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy!
