Boondi ladoo and motichoor ladoo are two most famous sweets in India. The difference between motichur and boondi ladoos is that the boondis in the boondi ladooos are larger and are fried till they are slightly brown in colour.

Heat oil in a deep pan. IMG 7466 Boondi Ladoo Recipe Take a boondi  jhara and pour some batter on it.Spread the batter with the back of a spoon so that the boondi falls into the oil.Fry the boondis over a high flame to a light golden colour, taking care to ensure that they are not very crisp. 42 Boondi Ladoo Recipe Add the bundis to the warm sugar syrup and mix well so that the boondis soak in the syrup well. Allow the mixture to cool completely.Now add chopped almonds/pistachios, cardamom powder, rose water, ghee and warm water. Mix everything well. 51 Boondi Ladoo Recipe Now knead the ladoos in round shape. To make the ladoos, scoop up some of the boondi mixture into your palm with a spoon. Gently squeeze the mixture between both palms to shape into a round ball about the size of a golf ball. As you are squeezing some of the syrup will come out.  You can make the boondi ladoo larger or smaller if you have a preference. 6 Boondi Ladoo Recipe As you finish making each boondi ladoo, put it on a plate and continue on to make the next ladoo.
