Motichoor ladoo is an Indian sweet, different from boondi ladoo, because this is with tiny boondi and slightly different method of preparation and ingredients. In this post, you can learn how to make these tiny boondi with step by step pictures and video. I always wondered how they manage to get so much tiny boondis. I have searched a lot in blogs, websites but, found nothing which explains the trick of getting tiny boondi. I have seen another method in which they grind the regular boondi and make motichoor ladoo. I have been postponing to try this recipe as I did not want to try that way. I know there should be some technique to make tiny boondi. Once when I was making plain salt boondi for boondi raita, the batter became watery and I got really tiny boondis. But it was more like a mess, half of it were like sev.
I wanted to make video for my boondi ladoo post this year and also I am a big fan of boondi and ladoo, but never get to eat. I know only if I can make myself I can eat it. So, when I went to chennai this year, I asked my MIL to buy and keep the boondi ladle. She too was sweet and thoughtful, bought and kept for me. Without this ladle I don’t think this recipe is possible. I remember my mom had two or three varieties of this boondi ladle which we call as Jalli karandi. One made of brass and other two made of iron. one of them is used to drain the boondis from oil. Other one to make boondi. When she used to make boondi or ladoo, my grandma will help or vise versa. I too have helped her when I have grown up. As she makes large quantity, another helping hand is a must to finish it fast.
Coming to today’s recipe, luckily saw few videos in which they show the technique, but was in doubt if it will turn out good, will it be possible for me and so on. It looked bit complicated, but somehow I was determined to try. I had plan to grind and do if it doesn’t turn out tiny, but wow, I pulled it off! I know many of you have been wanting to know how they make motichoor ladoo with tiny boondi, just like me. Finally the search has come to an end here! Impress everyone with this ladoo for this Diwali. No one will first believe that you made it, but make them believe, take a bow!
