furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to boondi sweet recipe. firstly, the besan batter has to be slightly thin and not a thick batter as used in any deep fry snack. it should easily flow and drip from the skimmer so that it forms a round shape. secondly, the deep-frying step is very critical to get a round shape to the boondi pearls. it should not be either extremely hot or at low temperature while deep frying. lastly, the time preference for dipping in sugar syrup is completely up to the individual. you may dip it for 10 minutes or 60 minutes or even for 4 hours depending upon the sweetness level you desire.
