"Crafting Delight: A Guide to Perfect Boondi Ladoo for Diwali Celebrations!"

Introduction:

Boondi Ladoo holds a special place in the hearts of Indians, especially during the festive season of Diwali. While crafting these delectable sweets might seem tricky, fear not! I'm here to break down the process for you, making it an enjoyable and successful endeavor. Join me on this culinary journey, and let's create a batch of Boondi Ladoo that will add sweetness to your Diwali celebrations. Wishing you all a Happy Diwali and a truly yummy experience!

Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making the perfect boondi ladoo. Firstly, for the batter, Make the batter perfectly then only you will get round boondi. If the batter is too thick, then you will get boondis with a tail, so add one tbsp of water to the batter and try again. If the batter is too thin, then you will get flat boondis, so add a tbsp of batter and mix well.

Secondly, the sugar syrup consistency, Take sugar and water in a pan, mix well and bring it to boil until you get a single string consistency. When you take the spoon from the syrup and see, the last drop falling from the syrup form a single string-like consistency. At this point, switch off the heat. Furthermore, single-string consistency is very important in boondi ladoo recipe.

Then, I didn’t add any food color, alternatively, you can add yellow color or orange color. Fry the boondis till they are a little soft and when the sizzling sound of the oil begins to quiet down. Another important thing is that, wipe off the ladle with a cloth for each batch. Finally, while preparing boondi ladoo, grease your hands with ghee.
