Sweet Boondi Ingredients for 10 Serving
- 1 and 1/2 cup gram flour (besan)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 pinches saffron
- 1 and 1/2 cup water
- 2 cup ghee
- 1/2 teaspoon green cardamom
- 8 almonds
How to Make Sweet Boondi (Sweet Boondi)
First, make the sugar syrup.
In a large nonstick skillet, combine the sugar and 1 1/2 cup water, stir well, and cook over high heat for 5-7 minutes, or until the sugar syrup is of 1 thread consistency. Remove the pan from the heat until the sugar has fully dissolved and the syrup has become slightly sticky.
Step 2: Make a boondi batter.
In a vessel, sieve gramme flour and add water as needed. 1 tbsp. saffron, soaked in 1 tbsp. water Ensure that the batter does not become too thin and that no lumps form. Heat ghee in a pan over medium heat, then pour some gramme flour batter onto a perforated spoon held just above the hot ghee. Allow tiny droplets to fall into the ghee by gently tapping the spoon’s edge.
Step 3: Cook the boondis in a deep fryer.
Stir and gently deep fry the boondis in ghee until crisp but not brown. Drain the excess oil by placing the boondi on a clean kitchen towel or paper towel. Place the boondi in the sugar syrup and leave it there for 5 minutes before removing it.
4th phase Nuts and cardamom powder can be sprinkled on top.
Using a knife, chop the almonds and grind the cardamom to a fine powder. Separate them into separate bowls. Spread the boondis on a large plate, sprinkle with cardamom powder and chopped almonds, and gently blend. (this is optional)
Step 5: Set aside the boondis to cool.
Allow to cool completely before loosening the boondi with your finger and separating each droplet. Boondi can be eaten right away or held in an airtight jar for later use. Please give this recipe a try, rate it, and let us know how it turned out.
