My 100 th post ~ Boondhi Laddu ~ Diwali Special

I wish you all my readers , bloggers a very Happy Diwali.
This post is so special to me as I have touched my century.
I know this is not a big mark since I have been labelled
as lazy during my childhood compared to my so Ideal
and perfect cousin sisters .
Boondhi Laddu is one of the sweet Amma used
to prepare during Diwali.

Water - 1/2 cup

Raisins - 1 tblsp
Cloves - 10
Oil to fry
Method
  • Take besan and rice flour in a vessel . Add water to form a thick batter.
  • Heat oil in a kadai . Meanwhile add sugar and 1/2 cup of water in another vessel and bring it to 1/2 string consistency . ( Take little bit of syrup between thumb and index finger and releases the index finger a half inch string should come.
  • Add 1 tsp ghee and color to it and switch off the flame.
  • When oil is hot keep the stove in medium flame .
  • Hold boondhi ladle to the top of the oil and pour 1 ladle of batter to it . Rub the batter with another laddle.

Madhuram said...

Congrats on your 100th post Kamala. I missed it, because during that week I was so busy with Diwali etc. As usual the traditional laddu looks exactly like what it is supposed to look like. And that first glass painting is so cute. The needlework is also very good. Both yourself and your sister have inherited the creative genes from your mother.
