Kara Boondhi

Happy Diwali !!! 

Kara Boondi is my daughter's favorite and here is a simple recipe for it. Once you have all the ingredients ready, it will take only 30 min to make the snack.

  • 2 cups Besan
  • 1/4 cup Rice Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tsp Chilly Powder ( Adjust to Taste)
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • 1/4 tsp Asafoetida
  • Curry Leaves - handful
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts
  • Oil to deep fry
Utensils required: Big Perforated spoon with round holes for making the boondis, laddle and a perforated spoon to remove the boondis from oil.

  1. In a bowl, add the besan, rice flour, salt, asafoetida, chilly powder, ghee and mix it well with enough water to get a dosa batter like consistency.
  2. Heat oil in a Kadai. When the oil is really hot, test the heat by adding a drop of the batter into the oil and it should immediately sizzle up. Now hold the big perforated spoon with round holes just over the Kadai and take a laddle full of the batter and pour it on the perforated spoon and quickly spread the batter so that small boondis will fall into the oil. 
  3. When the sizzling sound subsides, flip them over and remove it with a slotted spoon when it is done or when it begins to brown very slightly.
  4. Place the Boondis on a paper towel to drain the excess oil and repeat the process for the remaining batter.
  5. Once the Boondis are done, take a small pan and with 1 tsp oil, roast the peanuts and curry leaves till they become crisp and add it to the Boondis.
  6. Adjust the Salt and Spice levels by adding a 1/4 tsp Salt and 1/2 tsp Chilly Powder more and mix well. The Kara Boondhis are ready!!
