motichoor laddumotichoor ladoo recipe | motichoor laddu | motichur ladoo with step by step photo and video recipe. laddu recipes are very common across india during the festival seasons and can be made with several ingredients. one such popular variation is boondi pearl based laddu which is known for it taste, texture and appearance. it is always assumed that, it cannot be home-made but this post clears the confusion once in for all.

as i mentioned previously, the motichoor ladoo recipe is traditionally made with special custom made ladle or spoon specific for this laddu recipe. but it does not make any sense to purchase it and hold it in your kitchen as it does not have any other use case. hence i thought of sharing this recipe with easily available spoons/ladles and then customise it according to the recipe. so i have showcased 2 ways to prepare motichoor laddu, using the indian strainer ladle and a metal based fine grater. both these spoons should be easily available in any kitchen if not one. the end result may not be the same as you get it in store, but certainly free from preservatives and according to your taste and preference.

furthermore, i would like to add some tips and suggestions for a perfect, moist motichoor ladoo recipe. firstly, if you have an access to boondi jhaara than i would heavily recommend to use it instead of the above mentioned workaround. it is hassle free and the result is much better compared to the workaround options. secondly, the deep frying of boondi pearls are generally made with ghee. but this can be done with combination of ghee + oil or just oil. lastly, if your boondi are large then, coarsely grind the deep fried boondi to reduce the size of it. this can be totally skipped if you feel the deep fried boondi pearls are tiny and small in shape.
