Meethi Boondi

You will need:-
  • 1 cup gram flour ( besan )
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  •  pinch of orange colour
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • few slices of almonds and pistachio
  • oil ( I used sunflower )
  • 2 perforated spoon ( Jaro )

Sieve gram flour and add enough water to make the batter like Idly mix consistency. Keep it a side.
In a pan, dissolve 2 cup sugar in 3/4 cup water.Switch off the heat when it comes to a stringy consistency. Add orange colour,cardamom powder , Remove from the heat.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom kadai, oil should be very hot.
Take jaro, and keep jaro above hot oil upside down and pour 2-3 spoons of the batter.
Allow the batter to fall into the kadai on it's own and you can see small pearls in the hot oil.
Fry them till they reach golden colour, drain and remove them with another jaro.
When one round is over, clean or wipe completely the bottom of the holes thoroughly otherwise in the next round they don't fall like perfect round pearls.
When all boondis are done, heat sugar syrup for 1-2 minutes and add all the boondies to the sugar syrup.
Let the boondies soak in the syrup for about half an hour, making sure boondis are fully coated with the sugar syrup.
When u press boondi,u should feel the stickiness in that boondi.Remove them from the syrup.
Add nuts and mix well. You can make ladoos out of them too..
