Kara boondi is a criunchy crispy snack which we can prepare in a very less time . This kara boondi can be used in chats, add in mixture recipe or even we can make curry too.

The only important thing we need to take care is the consistency of the batter. If the batter consistency is not right,the boondis will not look good, either it will be flat otherwise with tail.


In this recipe I have used4: 1 ratio of besan and rice flour, you can use upto 2:1 too , but definitely the boondi crispness will change, so you can use any of the above ratio as per your taste.

In a mixing bowl , add the besan(chickpea flour), Rice flour , salt , Baking sodaand red chilli powder.

Mix well.

Then add the water little by little and mix wel with out lumps.

Don’t add water at one time.

The batter consistency should not be too thick or too thin.

Heat oil in pan.

Take the boondi ladle(ladle with small holes) and pour a ladle full of batter and slightly tap the sides.

The boondis will fell on the oil directly.


Don’t tap continuously, have to tap slowly otherwise the boondis will stick with each other.

Stir in between with another ladle and let the boondis to cook evenly.

Once the sizzling reduced and the boondi got cooked crisp, drain from oil

Make boondi in the same way using rest of the batter and drain in  a tissue paper.


While taking every time, mix the batter once before making boondis

Also wipeoff the boondi ladle  in between (2 or 3 times once)using a  tissue or wet cloth  to open the holes in any thing is closed

Finally roast the crushed garlic in a separate pan and drain it too.

Add all the roasted /fried items with the boondi .

Add the pepper powder and little salt

Mix well.

Store in a air tight container.

 

NOTES:

 

1. The consistency of the batter is very important , it should not be too thin or too think to get perfect round boondis.

2. Keep more oil to deep fry the boondis , otherwise tey will stick together.

3. Dont add more baking soda , just a pinch is enough.

4. You cna even use colander with small holes to make boondis instead of the boondi ladle.

5. You cna even add half a teaspoon of turmeric powder for bright yellow colour.

6. Drain the oil with a tissue paper before adding the peanuts, cashews....

7. I have fried the garlic seoarately as it may leave the smell in the whole oil. if you discard the oil once used, youcn fry in that itself.

8. Adding little salt while mixing gives nice taste tot he boondi, dont add more.

9. Each and every time mix the batter once before pouring on to the ladle,also wipe the ladle for 2 or 3 times once to get nice round boondis.

10. you can even add red chilli powder to while mixing pepper powder for more spiciness.
