Sweet Boondi | Boondi | Diwali Sweets

Though i had made kara boondi and boondi ladoo, i never made sweet boondi before. Making boondi itself is a bit time consuming process and need lot of attention.I wish to have more hands especially when i  make any indian sweets :-), usually it requires lot of stirring or multitasking at a time, right?

Clicking step by step photo is really difficult, making boondi at one hand and clicking on other hand, omg, somehow i manage it. But when i see those beautiful boondi, all my pain was gone and it taste so delicious.Crispy outside and juicy inside,who can say no to that? and i vaguely remember eating boondi with sugar candy in it in my childhood. but now i couldn't find any shop making like that, just to recreate that,i added sugar candy,but you can skip that. If you're beginner, then see the notes and this video before you start, it helps to avoid the mistakes and make the process easier.

Before doing next batch, clean the slotted spoon to get neat round shapes.Once all the boondi is fried,take the sugar in a sauce pan, add water just to immerse the sugar and let it boil,till the sugar reach one string consistency(Take sugar syrup in between your thumb & index finger, it should from single thread).Now add  the crushed cardamom and cloves in to the sugar syrup , then add boondi, give a good mix and finally add sugar candy.Fry cashews till golden brown & add into the boondi, let it cool completely.Tasty & juicy Sweet Boondi is ready.
  • While making the batter, don't add too much water at the start, check it by dipping a spoon in the batter and place it above the hot oil.
  • If the boondi have tails, you have to add more water or else
  • if the boondi becomes flat and absorbs lot of oil,then you have to add more flour.
  • To check the detail procedure see this video.
  • Sugar candy is optional.
  • Cloves and cardamom gives great flavor to the boondi.
  • If you like, you can add rose essence too for flavor.
  • If you have boondi karandi, use that, it will give the perfect shape.
