Boondis are nothing but small round deep fried balls of gram flour which are soaked in sugar syrup. Later on the syrup is drained. These infused balls are called as Sweet Boondis or Meethi Boondi. This is generally made during special occasions in India. Easy to make and can be stored up to a week at room temperature and after which refrigerated upto a month.



Preparation Time:

10 mins

Cooking Time:

30 mins


Gram Flour
- 1 Cup
  Water - ½ Cup
 Sugar - 1 ½ Cup
  Water - 1 Cup (for the syrup)
 Cardamom Powder - 1 tsp
 Oil for deep frying
  Perforated spoon/ ladle
  Candy thermometer - this is used to measure the temperature of the sugar syrup


• Place Water and Sugar in a pan and bring it to boiling on medium heat. Now stir continuously till all the Sugar is dissolved.

• Then reduce the heat to low until the temperature of the Syrup has reached to 220deg on Candy thermometer.

• Meanwhile mix the Gram Flour with Water to make a smooth consistent batter.

• Heat Oil in a frying pan on medium heat.

• Now hold the perforated ladle about 1 1/2 inches above the Oil in the centre of the frying pan. With the other hand pour the batter over the ladle to cover all the holes.

• The batter will drop through the holes in the Oil.

• Fry them till the sizzling sound stops and slightly golden in colour.

• Lift these Boondis with a slotted spoon/ladle and drop them directly in the warm syrup and mix.

• Let them soak in the syrup for few minutes.

• Add the Cardamom Powder to the syrup and mix well.

• Now drain off the excess syrup and store them in clean-dry containers.

"Dear Spices of India, I am emailing you to let you know how happy I am after using your site for the first time to order 20 or so products and spending 30 GBP plus. I have not received the products yet as I only ordered them yesterday and I live in France so I would not expect them to arrive for another four or five days. However, using your site, your basket and checkout system was extremely simple and straightforward. Whoever designed your site gets my praise. As a very new and amateur web designer, I know how difficult even the simplest of sites can be to design and configure. Your prices are excellent and I am hoping your products will be the same. I am looking forward to receiving my order but, in the meanwhile, thank you once again for such a detailed and easy-to-use website. In this day and age, when too many people complain (or, in the case of the British, don't complain to the powers-that-be but moan to all their friends about what they weren't happy about instead of contacting the company to give them an opportunity to correct the customer's grievance) I am writing to show my appreciation. Keep up the good work and I look forward to receiving my goods. Cheers!"
