With Diwali around first thing comes to our mind is SWEETS.
    So to begin with here is a simple MITHAI usually gifted.





    • 1 cup chickpea,gram flour (besan)
    • 1 tbsp cornflour
    • A pinch of soda bicarb
    • Few drops of yellow/orange food colour)
    • Oil for deep frying (used olive oil)
    • 1 tbsp ghee(to add to oil when deep frying)
    • 10-12 cashewnuts roughly chopped
    • 10-12 raisins(sultana,kismis)


    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder (Elaichi powder)
    • 1 tsp rose water.


    1. Firstly strain the chickpea flour, cornflour and soda bicarb with help of a sieve. Add little water at a time and stir until all lumps gets dissolved. Add some more water and food colour and whisk the batter rigorously until it gets pouring consistency (for making batter from 1 cup gram flour we have used approximately ½ cup water). Keep it aside for 10-15 minutes.


    1. Take sugar in any utensil and add water into it. Let the sugar melt completely. After sugar gets dissolved cook for 3-4 more minutes and then check.
    2. Take 1-2 drops of syrup in a bowl, make it cool down and check with help of your thumb and forefinger. It should have one thread consistency.
    3. If thread is not formed cook syrup for 1-2 more minutes. Sugar syrup for ladoo is ready.


    1. Take oil in a pan and heat it. Add 1 tbsp ghee to it.
    2. Stir the gram flour mixture for one more time nicely. Place a sieve/sieve laddle 6-7 inch above the pan and pour gram flour batter on top of it with help of a spoon.

    1. Mixture falls in the pan and boondi gets ready. Fry until boondi turns golden brown in color. Like wise fry all boondi.


    1.  Add cardamom, cashew nuts and raisins in the sugar syrup. Also add boondi in the syrup and mix all ingredients nicely. Soak the boondi in syrup for ½ hour. Boondi will absorb syrup into it.
    2. Now wet your hands with water or milk and start forming laddoos of desired size.

      *If you wish to make MOTICHOOR LADDOO then use orange food colour to the boondi batter.

      And once the boondi is soaked in syrup, put them in a mixer jar n pulse to a coarse texture(the motichoor texture) and shape into laddoos..

      Eat, store and finish.
