Laddu, iam not a big fan for it. but i tell you, its so fun to make and it will be enjoyed by the kids and family. My kid calls it as chotta bheem laddu. My son, just 4 and half year old, kissed my hands and told,"Thank You Amma, for making these chotta bheem laddu!". i was completely flattered on hearing that. i never thanked my mom, whenever she prepared my favourites, but these kids know very well, how to appreciate. Hubby, whenever picking up these laddus, shouts, "kanna laddu thinna aasaiyya" to my son. Iam glad that i made these laddu's for this diwali.
Laddu is one of easiest traditional sweet to make. The trick is on besan flour mixed with water. it should not be thick or watery. it should be like our dosa batter. if this is kept in mind, every other things make you way for perfect laddu. also keep washing the boondi karandi after every batch and wipe it dry with a clean cloth before starting every batch of boondi's. this will make all boondis look even.
check my video of making Boondhi Laddu.
important tip i learned: Laddu's cannot be shaped, when boondi is so hot. leave it to cool down, when the boondi mixture is just warm, start making laddu's. its so easy to shape laddu's.
i referred cilantro and jeyashri's kitchen for making these laddu.
