Boondi Ladoo/Laddu Recipe

      Laddu's are everybody favourite.Recent Diwali's like for past 10 years my mom makes this Boondi Ladoo for Diwali .It is just mouth watering and so good .
      I asked her about boondi ladoo's couple of days ago ,with her explanation i just want to try it for sure .I made a very small batch and it was perfect and yummy .I used less sugar than mithai shops ladoos.

Some tips for getting perfect ladoos:

  1.  After we deep fry  the besan through holed laddle it is called "boondi ".You get lot of bubbles while doing soWhen the bubbles subside it is the right time to take boondi's out .
  2. Don't under cook the boondis , you get a raw smell in ladoo's .
  3. If you overcook then boondi's don't  absorb the sugar syrup.And also press the boondi's in sugar syrup ,this way boondi absorbs sugar syrup well .
  4. When you feel that sugar is getting crystallised try adding some lemon juice after you get the single thread consistency (or pisuku padham).
  5. You can very well omit the colour added ,but adding of colour give a appealing look to ladoo's.
  6. While adding water to besan be careful not to add too much water .Then you don't get proper boondi shapes  .
  7. You don't have laddle to make boondi's ?Don't worry i did it with colander having circle holes in the centre.
  8. My mom asked me to use pacha karpooram(edible camphor ) which i don't have .If you have it just add little bit of it in sugar syrup otherwise fine too.
