Kaara Boondi–Indian Snacks

You have seen me in lot of foods, but generally I go unnoticed.. Who am I? One of the answers is Boondi.. It is tiny little balls golden in color that is added to many items like Mixture, Chaat items, raitha, Chivda etc.. Kaara Boondi is a very famous snack that can be eaten as is, with curd as Boondi raitha or on top of various chat items. It is a quick and easy recipe which needs very less ingredients most of which are in most pantries. I enjoy kaara boondi as is.. It is a pleasure to keep munching these cute tiny golden balls.. So yummm

MethodHeat oil in a pan
Mix kadalai maavu with water making a batter which is thicker than bajji maavu. Add water slowly and little at a time.. Consistency is pouring consistency..
Using the boondi ladle and once the oil is hot, put a spoon of the batter on the ladle and if it falls immediately and forms good round, then the batter is good. Fry one batch and see if it is round, crispy and also light and hollow. Add water if any of the above is not there and if it is too watery or too light or is not round, add more flour.
Fry until golden on all sides and remove from oil to a paper towel to remove excess oil
In the same oil, fry the curry leaves for 30 seconds or until well fried and keep aside
Add chili powder, salt and asafetida to the curry leaves and crush it
It will become small pieces as it has been fried
Mix the boondi and the curry leaves mixture and serve!!
