Boondi Mixture / Kara Boondi

Boondi Mixture is a snack made with Boondi . This is a crispy, salty, spicy  tea time snack and is our all time favouite.

I didn't have the boondi laddle but I always wanted to make this at home. With the boondi laddle you will get perfect round shaped boondi. But I tried without that. Shape of the boondi is not perfect but the taste is.  


1 cup Besan Flour
2 tablespoon Rice Flour
1 teaspoon Red Chilli Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt 
Sprig Curry Leaves
1 tablespoon Broken Cashewnuts
1 tablespoon Peanuts
Oil for deep frying

  1. Mix Besan flour, rice flour, salt and red chilli powder. Add a little more than 3/4 cup of water. Do the back of spoon check for batter. Batter should drop like a small round bubble from the back of the spoon.  Heat oil for deep frying.
  2. You need 3 laddles to make boondi. Pour the batter on the ladder with a hole into hot oil.
  4. Always wipe off the batter from the back of the laddle with holes.Fry boondi till it turns to golden brown colour and remove from oil to absorbent paper.
  5. In a small pan, add a teaspoon of oil fry cashewnuts and peanuts. Keep them aside. Then fry curry leaves. Add all these to mixture. Check for taste and more salt and red chilli powder if needed. 
  6. The best timepass snack ever.
