Boondi is a Rajasthani dessert food made from sweetened, fried chickpea flour(besan) and sugar syrup.There is also a savory version, called khara or tikha.


Gram flour(besan)-1 cup
Semolina(suji)-1 tbsp
Water as needed
Ghee for deep frying
Orange food color(optional)
Sugar- 1 cup
Water-3/4 cup
Saffron a pinch
Cardamom powder-1 tsp
Chopped dry fruits


1-In a bowl take gram flour,semolina,food color,then add water to it and mix well until it converts into a smooth paste.Keep this aside.

2-In a pan make the syrup by boiling sugar,water and cardamom powder together.Mix well and cook on a high flame for few minutes or till the sugar syrup is of 1 thread consistency.Once ready keep aside.

3-In another pan heat ghee for deep frying,add a drop of batter into the oil to test weather the ghee is hot.
4-Hold a perforated spoon on top of the pan,slowly pour the batter on the perforated spoon,so that the batter drips into tiny droplets and get fried evenly until golden brown.

5-Drain the boondis in a tissue and immediately add to the sugar syrup and mix well.After an hour the boondis would have absorbed the sugar syrup well and becomes soft.Even I made some red color and green color boondis just for eye appeal.

6-When boondis cool down completely sprinkle some dry fruits and saffron and serve.
