We can't resist the craving for Sweet Boondis or Boondi Laddu especially during Diwali celebrations and special family occasions.

Sweet Boondis are popular sweet in our nation. Boondis are deep-fried to softly textured droplets sweetened with sugar syrup and flavoured with edible camphor and cardamoms.

Cooking Time 30 minutes
Yield: 5 servings
Do refer the video for the procedure.


Besan Flour 500 gms
Water 200 ml for batter-preparation
Water 200 ml for sugar syrup preparation
Edible camphor one pinch
Cardamoms 8 pcs to be crushed
Fresh ghee 50 ml
Kaesar Powder one pinch
Cashews 8 pcs
Raisins 20 pcs.


Mix the besan flour with water to get thick and runny batter.
Mix well till no lumps remain.
Heat the Oil to the deep-frying temperature.
We use special perforated large soon to make boondis here.
Apply some ghee over both sides of the spoon to get fine droplets.
Just drop a tiny batter into the oil to check the perfect deep-frying temperature.
If the batter drop comes up immediately on the top, the oil is ready.
Hold the spoon 4 inches above the hot oil and pour a bowlful batter.
The droplets are falling into the oil.
Once the oil is full of droplets of the batter, take out the spoon and wash and wipe with a cloth.
Smear ghee both sides of the spoon.
Set aside.
Now the droplets deep-fried to the softy textured tiny balls.
Don't allow to fry crispy.
Once oil bubbles cease to a minimum, take out the boondis and collect on an absorbent paper.
Repeat the same process for the remaining batter.
Medium flame throughout the process.
Boondis are ready.
Now we have to make sugar syrup to one string consistency.
Heat the sugar with water in a separate wok.
Add Kaesar powder one pinch
Let the sugar dissolves and boiled to one string consistency.
Turn off the heat.
Add boondis now.
Mix well to coat the sugar syrup to all boondis.
Add ghee and mix gently.
Set aside so that all boondis absorbed sugar syrup and ghee and turn more soft and sweetened.
Heat the tempering pan and fry cashew bits and raisins.
Transfer the contents to the boondis.
Add edible camphor and cardamom seeds coarse powder.
Mix gently.

Now very nice Sweet Boondis are ready to relish!
Thank you Dears.
