Boondi Laddoo & Diwali Wishes

Wishing you all a happy and prosperous diwali wishes, may this diwali brings you loads of health, joy, happiness and many great things u wish for!!!!




Am celebrating this diwali with delicious boondi laddoos and wishing you all a happy and safe diwali...As i told before, here am coming with boondi laddoos which i prepared this year as diwali specials with my besan cake..I usually prepare this cute boondi laddoos every year, but last year my diwali special went for Badusha..as every year, we cant celebrate this festival of lights with crackers, but never to failed to celebrate this great day with savouries and sweets, fortunately this year diwali falled on saturday and i was really glad to celebrate this diwali with my dear H and my lil ones and gonna enjoy the day by visiting my relative's places..Hope u guys are enjoying ur diwali with savouries and sweets...Again am wishing u all a happy diwali dear..


2cup Gram flour
2+1/2cups Sugar
Yellow food colour
1tsp Cardamom powder
1/2tsp Nutmeg powder
Oil
Few cashew nuts & raisins
3tbsp Ghee


Prepare batter with besan with a cup of water. This should be without any lumps..See for consistency of batter and add little more water if required. Make 1 1/2 thread consistency syrup with sugar adding a cup of wate, food color and stir.

Heat oil in a pan. To make boondi you need big flat laddle with medium sized holes (kind of strainer with round holes). Take a spoonful of batter put it on the spoon with holes and start rubbing it with the other spoon into the oil. These will fall like drops, fry them till brown and take them and put it in the prepared syrup. Meanwhile fry the cashews and raisins with few drops of ghee until they get fried..



Repeat the same process until you finish up all the batter, mixing well boondi's in the syrup once in a while. Add cardamom powder,nutmeg powder and fried cashews and raisins, mix well. Take handful of mixture and form laddus when still warm, as laddu doesn't hold up well if the mixture cools down.

Store in a clean container.
