Boondi Ladoo

My blog turns 7 years today and it has been an amazing long journey. Hope to continue this with the same vigour with all your support. So much of support my husband and sweet little son's. Thought of doing a sweet today.  Follow the recipe is below .....

Boondi Ladoo

This is a delicious sweet made and enjoyed on almost all occasions. This is my 2nd attempt at making these ladoo's. They came out with good texture and taste. This is a common sweet dish during diwali. Mostly available in shops in India but as far as I know rarely made at home. I have never seen this beging made at my home. Initially i was thinking that its very difficult to attempt this at home. Inspired by my blogger friends I was tempted to attempt this at home. Recipe and tips borrowed from my mom. I could make 12 yummy laddoos within 45 mins.
