I have never imagined that i will be making laddu at home. Iam flying high that i have learned a traditional sweet with ease. For the past week, i was trying few traditional sweets, so laddu also became a part of my experiment. i kept asking my friends for boondhi karandi(perforated laddle) & one of our friend Anitha got her MIL's boondi karandi for me. that was a sweet gesture from her. Thanks Dear!
I had to gain a lot of confidence to try boondi, as i remember my mom's first attempt of making laddu was a failed attempt. after referring so many blogs and mallika badrinath's sweet book, i went on to try boondi yesterday. Yesterday i discovered that, 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, just 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 the next batch.this will make all boondis look even.
