  • Chickpeas flour / Gram Flour / Besan 1 Cup
  • Baking powder 1 Tsp
  • All purpose flour/Semolina 1 Tbsp
  • Food color Orange 1 pinch
  • Food color Red 1 pinch
  • Food Color Green 1 pinch
  • Pinch of salt
  • Veg oil for frying
  • Water ½ - ¾  Cup to prepare
  • To prepare Sugar Syrup
    • Sugar 1 cup
    • Cardamom powder ½ Tsp
    • Water ¾ Cup+2 Tsp


  • To Prepare Sugar Syrup:
    • In a pan add sugar 1 cup, water ¾ cup + 2 Tsp and cardamom
      powder and cook on high flame and stir constantly.
    • Once sugar dissolves and water starts to boil cook for 2 minutes and then turn off the flame.
  • To Prepare Boondi:
    • In a bowl sieve besan, baking powder, all-purpose flour and add salt and mix well.
    • Now, by adding water prepare a lump free and
      dropping consistency batter(the batter should have flowing consistency so that it can easily drop in oil while frying). 
    • Divide prepared batter into 3 parts and add a pinch of red, orange and green food colors and mix well.
    • Meanwhile, heat oil in a kadhai and hold the strainer(boondi jhara)
      right above the kadhai and pour orange color batter into the strainer. 
    • Spread batter with a spoon, and you can see small drops of boondi falling in the hot oil.
    • Once done remove boondis from oil and place them on a paper napkin to absorb excess oil.
    • Similarly, prepare red color and green color
      boondi and mix them all together.
  • To Assemble the Boondi:
    • Now take sugar syrup and check consistency, it should be sticky, and there would not be any string (tar).
    • Add fried boondi to sugar syrup and mix well to coat boondi well.
    • Cover and keep aside to let the boondi absorb sugar syrup for 3-4 hours or overnight.
    • After 4 hours mix boondi well and sweet boondi is ready to serve. Enjoy!!!

My Take:

  • You can add sliced almonds, cashews or pumpkin seeds to garnish boondi.
  • The excessive free flowing batter will result in flat boondi, so be careful while preparing the batter.
  • Test oil by putting a drop of prepared batter in hot oil and if the boondi comes up it is ready and remember oil should not be very hot, that can burn your boondi.
  • Ensure Boondi Jhara/ Strainer is washed or wiped for each lot to get perfect round Boondis.
