Boondi Ladoo

Hello Everyone, Wish all of you a very Happy Shree Panchami or Saraswati Pujo, what ever you say..

Today for Saraswati Pujo I am sharing my  Grandma in law’s(didishashuri) one delicacy. Sometimes she used to make this laddos , and we could not even wait to complete her staff,  we used to start eating.. Those were the days!!  Today I was remembering her laddoos  and wanted to share wth you all.

For Boondi

2 1/2 cups gram flour (not superfine variety)
500 ml. milk
1/2 tsp. cardamom powder
3 cups ghee for deep frying
a fineholed shallow strainer spoon

For syrup:

2 1/2 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups water
2 tbsp. milk
few drops saffron (kesri) colour

For syrup:

Put sugar and water in a vessel and boil. When sugar dissolves, add milk. .Boil for 5 minutes till dirt forms on top.
Strain and return to fire. Add colour and boil till sticky but no thread has formed. Add cardamom powder and mix. Keep aside.

For boondi:

Mix flour and milk to a smooth batter. Heat ghee in a heavy frying pan. Hold strainer on top with one hand. With the other pour some batter all over the holes. Tap gently till all batter has fallen into hot ghee. Stir with another strainer and remove when light golden. Keep aside. Repeat for remaining batter. Immerse boondi in syrup. Drain any excess syrup. Spread in a large plate. Sprinkle few tsp. hot water over it. Cover and keep for 5 minutes. Shape in laddoos with moist palms. Cool and keep open to dry, before storing in containers.

Enjoy  !!.. It really comes out fantastic!
