Kara boondi is another recipe I used to help my mom when I was a kid. I love the process of making this. Always fascinated by the method they make this. Pouring the batter over a slotted ladle and forming boondis. My mom also makes sweet boondi, that’s another favorite of mine. Few times, we have made boondi laddoos too. May be next year I will share those recipes. My mom passed me a cookbook that has recipes very close to our way of making. Some other recipes me and my mom wrote in a note and till date, I refer it.
This particular cookbook is ‘Rani Samayal’ by the famous Tamil novelist Ramani chandran. Its really very useful for me at various preparations. And I followed the kara boondhi recipe also from this cookbook. Turned out perfect. Crispy and flavourful.
Store in air tight container and enjoy as a tea time snack! The garlic, pepper and curry leaves fried in ghee adds a great flavour to the kara boondi.
