After seeing lot of diwali recipe in blogsphere,i too think of making some diwali recipe.so tried this kara bhoondi for first time.Though the shape of the bhoodhis are not prefect,its very crispy and tasty.
Besan Flour - 11/2 cup
Chili powder - 2 tsp
Asafoetida - pinch
Salt - to taste
Groundnut - to taste
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,chili powder,asafoetida,salt to make thick batter consistency as shown below
Heat oil in the frying pan to make boondhi.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.
Fry the bhoodhis until the "shh" sound stops or until the boondhi is crispy.Remove it from oil and put it on paper towel.Last fry the groundnut in the oil and add into bhoodhi(you can use cashews also)
Once it cool down,store it in air tight container and use it.
