it is a common practice in south india to share savouries with each diwali sweet gift box. the most common savouries found on these boxes are either kara boondi or roasted cashews. the whole idea is to balance the taste of the gift box and not to overpower with just sweets. whereas i generally prepare these boondi pearls for my day to day evening munching snacks with a cup of masala chai. i even extend the same recipe by mixing it with roasted cashews and plain sev. further i even add the same kara boondi to my raita to prepare boondi raita. typically the raita is prepared from plain boondi’s but it tastes great with kara boondi too.

how to make khara boondiwhile the recipe is extremely simple, yet i would like to share some tips and recommendations for a perfect kara boondi recipe. firstly, adjust the consistency of besan batter as it plays a major role in getting round shaped pearls. also whisk the batter well without forming any lumps else it will be difficult to pass in the ladle. finally, drain off the boondi onto kitchen towel else, boondi will be oily.

notes:

  • firstly, adjust the consistency of besan batter by adding water as required.
  • also vary the amount of spices while adding to the batter.
  • fry in hot oil, else boondi will turn flat and wont be crispy.
  • finally, adding soda is optional however it helps khara boondi to make more crispy and round.
