Boondi Laddu / Ladoo Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 08:20:00
Boondi Laddu is of the the oldest and the most traditional varieties of sweet. Very common indeed, and prepared in almost all functions. These laddus are also available in the sweet stalls but they are made out of maida unlike the ones which I am going to show you today. The sweets prepared out of maida ( all purpose flour), if consumed in excess, are not good for your health

Kitchen Masti Points

  1. The boondis should be prepared immediately as soon as it is mixed with the sugar syrup, otherwise, the sugar syrup tends to get crystallized.
  2. Suppose, if the sugar syrup becomes too sticky, add a little quantity of water and heat it for a few seconds,
  3. The boondi laddus that you get in the sweet stalls is usually prepared out of maida ( all purpose flour). But gram flour has an advantage over maida, both in terms of taste and health.
  4. As far as possible , see to it the the boondi mixture and the sugar syrup does not come in contact with water., otherwise , the laddus will be spoiled very quickly., if not it can be stored for around 10 days very easily.
  5. While preparing sugar syrup, suppose if you are not able to realize the thread consistency, then take a small bowl filled with water, add 2 drops of sugar syrup into it. Just feel it. If it has thread type consistency, then it means that your sugar syrup is ready. Otherwise, you will have to extend boiling the sugar syrup for a few more moments.
