Meethi boondi or sweet bundi is a popular prasad (offering) distributed on Tuesdays after a temple visit. Growing up, this was my favorite sweet and the love for sweet boondi still continues. I am and have been a sweet boondi lover through and through.
Still remember how we rushed to grab that small brown bag when mom returned from the temple and it was all gone in one go. Brings back so many childhood memories. 🙂 Well now we can enjoy this mouthwatering meethi boondi or sweet bundi at home.
Now on to the recipe!
It’s a pretty straightforward recipe. The consistency of the batter is the key thing in this recipe. Please follow these simple tricks-
- Batter should be of dropping consistency – neither too thick nor too thin.
- Check oil before adding the boondi.
- Hold the strainer above the kadhai/frying pan as this will result into small round boondis.
- Even if you get some sticky boondi lumps in the oil – no worries fry until crisp and once sugar is added, you can break them apart.
- Do not over fry the boondis as they may result into discoloration.
Sugar syrup should be of one-string consistency. Check by taking a drop of sugar syrup in between your fingers and if it forms a thick string between your fingers without breaking – sugar syrup is ready to use.
Please follow this link on how to make Chashni.
Once boondis are added to the sugar syrup they will become sticky and look like a spread of sugar candy- all gooey and soft. No worries; allow it to cool completely and when sugar crystallizes, mix with a spoon and they will separate.
Now who can resist the power of a huge batch of these sweet boondis. They are so addicting and I bet you can’t eat just one! If you happen to make these then either drop me a line below or share your yum pictures with me on Facebook. Would love to see your creation!
