This is the favorite sweet in India. Eating a well made ladoo can be wonderful gastronomic experience. These are also called motichur ladoos.


  • 1 cup Channa Besan (make sure it should not have clumps.)
  • 1 Tsp Rice Flour
  • Salt 1 pinch

  • Oil for frying

For making sugar syrup:

  • 1 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 3/4 Water


  1. Mix channa besan, rice flour, pinch of orange colour and salt with water. (the consistency should be like dosa mix so that it should be easy to make boondi)
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan.
  3. In the mean time in a pan heat 3/4 cup of water. Bring it to boil. Then add 1 3/4 of sugar. Put it in medium heat to make the sugar syrup. (care should be taken that the sugar syrup is not over done. Using a spoon take few drops of sugar syrup, when you pour it from the spoon the last drop of the syrup should form a thin continuous line. If it doesn’t keep it for boiling for another 2 minutes.)
  4. When the oil is heated up, using a cup pour the mix little by little on a perforated spoon to make boondi. Fry it for 3 minutes. Continue with the remaining mix.
  5. In a heated pan add 1 tbsp of ghee and fry cloves and cashews. Keep it aside.
  6. Once the boondies are done put it in a vessel and smash 1/4 of boondi with a spoon then add the sugar syrup, rasins, fried cashews , cloves, powdered elaichi and the remaining ghee. Make it into a ball (even when it is hot.)
