Boondhi Laddoo

Since we don't have any festivals this year, we didn't make any sweets for navarathri. But my kids really love laddoo. Since my MIL is here with us and she make really good laddoos, thought of learning laddoos from her.


  1. Besan Flour/Kadala maavu - 1 cup
  2. Rice flour - 3 tsp
  3. Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
  4. Cardamom - 1
  5. Edible Camphor - a pinch
  6. food color - two pinches
  7. Oil - to deep fry
  8. Cashew & Raisins - to garnish
Mix besan flour and rice flour along with food color and make it like a batter. Consistency should be like dosa batter. Take a heavy bottomed pan, dissolve sugar with just required amount of water and let it boil. Syrup should come like a sticky syrup. If you touch it, your hands should be sticky. When the paagu is ready, heat the oil, pour the batter in a sieve with round holes. Tap it with a small spoon so that small balls fall in the hot oil. When its fully cooked, add it immediately to the sugar syrup. In the mean time, fry cashew & raisins to golden brown and add it in the syrup. When the mix is warm, make small balls and let it cool.  Now Boondhi laddoo is ready.

I am sending this to Pari's 'Only' even, this time 'Only-Festive food Event  hosting by Preethi.
