How to make Boondi:

1. Heat oil for deep frying in a heavy bottomed pan or kadai
2. In a bowl, add water to besan flour and mix nicely without any lumps
3. Consistency of the batter is very much important for making Laddoos. Batter should neither be too thin nor too thick

4. To check the proper consistency of the batter, When oil is hot put a small drop of the batter into hot oil
5. This small drop of batter should immediately puff up into a bubble and should come up and float on top of the oil. This bubble is referred to as Boondhi. Hence the recipe named Boondi Laddu.

6. Also the boondi should not have any tail i.e. it should be round in shape
7. If
boondi is not properly round in shape, then later when you pour a ladle full of batter, each boondi formed will stick to each other while frying, which is not desired
8. For making Laddu recipe we need to use 2 ladles which have holes. One ladle should be bigger in size and another a bit smaller one

9. If you are sure with the consistency then start making
boondi. For this hold big ladle with holes on top of hot oil pan and pour a cup full of batter on it
10. Batter oozes out from holes of the ladle and fall into hot oil
11. As soon as they fall in hot oil they puff up as bubbles 
and float on top of oil
12. When these bubbles float on oil, using a smaller ladle with holes remove the bubbles from oil and drain them in a strainer
