Hi, dear friends. Today I’ll be sharing with you an exotic dessert made from sweet boondis in creamy milk with nuts which is awesome to taste and enjoyable to make. So let’s start—
- Boondi -250 gms.
- Milk – 1 kg.
- Nuts – Cashew, Raisin, Almond, Pistachio, Walnut.
- Sugar – 1 cup.
- Cardamom Powder – 1/2 tsp.
For making the boondiya:-
- Besan or Gram Flour – 250 gms.
- Water – 1 cup.
- Sugar – 50 gms.
- Baking Powder – 1/2 tsp.
- Vegetable oil – For frying.
To make the boondiya take a bowl and add fresh gram flour or besan to it. Now we will add water so that a batter of dropping consistency is formed. The batter must not be too thin or too thick, just right so that it can drop out of the perforated ladle to make the boondis.
Next, add the given amount of sugar to it and mix it well.
Heat vegetable oil in a deep bottomed vessel and when it gets quite hot pour the batter a little at a time over the perforated ladle so that small pearls of the besan batter fall in the oil from the ladle.
Let the boondiya get a little reddish and then scoop it out from the vessel so that they don’t get burnt.
Now to make the sugar syrup, take some water in a vessel. When it boils, add some sugar to it. Let it boil for some time till it gets thickened. Mix the boondiya in this sugar syrup or ‘chashni’ and then sieve it out and keep it aside.
The boondiyas are just ready. Let it cool.
Take a heavy bottomed karahi and add one-liter of milk to it. Add 1/2 tsp of cardamom powder to it. Let it boil on medium flame.
When the milk gets thickened and becomes half of the original quantity add sugar to it. Let it cool. After getting cooled whip it up in a mixer-grinder. It will get a creamy texture. Now add the boondiyas to it along with dry nuts like cashews, raisins, almonds, walnuts, and pistachios. You can also add some kewra or rose essence if you want to but it is optional.
Refrigerate this dish and enjoy it with you regular platter. It sure will delight you.
