Besan Flour - 11/2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
Cloves - 4 (powdered)
Cashews - 10 nos (make it as small pieces)
Raisins - 15 nos
Orange color - pinch
Oil for frying
First mix the besan flour with water to make thick paste.This prevents the lumps(if you add more water at the begin itself will form lumps and also its difficult to break the lumps).
Then mix enough water & orange color(dont have yellow food color,so i use orange color) to make thick batter consistency as shown below
Heat oil in the frying pan to make boondhi.In the mean time in a sauce pan put sugar and water( just to immerse the sugar),cardomom & cloves powder and allow it to boil for around 12-15 mins to make thick sugar syrup(be careful dont crystallize it) and keep aside.
Once the oil is ready ,use either the boondhi ladle or the normal ladle with holes which we used for frying.
Keep the ladle above the frying pan and pour the batter on the ladle , so that drops of batter falls on the oil and make boondhi.
Just allow to fry for 2 mins dont make the boondhi as crispy.Remove it from oil when it is soft itself and put it in sugar syrup.Similarly do it for remaining batter and allow the bhoondi to absorb syrup.
Then using any masher to mash the boondhi slightly. Fry the cashews and raisins in ghee and add it in boondhi mixture.
Make round balls from mixture(when the mixture is warm itself) and allow it to dry,then keep it in air tight box.This measurement will yield approximately 17-19 medium ladoos.
Now the yummy ladoos are ready.
