 DEEPAVALI ....a row of lamps....... is approaching!!!

The spicy Kara Boondi can be called a multi-faceted snack, since it can be used fo mixture, for topping curd rice,  curd vadas, raitas and chat items. A very easy boondi recipe here......which yields close to 1/2 kg Boondi, which if we go to buy, will cost close to Rs. 200/- or more....

And boondi making doesn't require any extra strength, since we just have to pour the batter.

                                                           Besan flour -- 11/2 cups
                                                            Rice flour - 3/4 cup - little less. The ratio is 1 cup besan : 1/4-1/2                                                                cup rice flour)
                                                             Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
                                                             Hing powder - 1/2 tsp
                                                             Chilli powder - 2 - 2 1/2  tsps
                                                              Baking powder - a pinch
                                                              Salt to taste
                                                           Broken cashews - a handful
                                                           Curry leaves, a handful, washed and wiped

                                                              Enough oil to make

                              Recipe cuisine: South Indian;  Category: Savories/snacks
                                          Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 30 mts

                                                           Yields close to 1/2 kg

                                                    Besan, rice flours taken in a bowl

Turmeric, hing, salt, chilli powders  added

Baking powder added now

Water added little by little and whisked to a smooth consistency

smooth and creamy batter

Consistency should be like this

Heat the kadai with oil, and boondi making now. Would like to share a very important tip...everytime after boondi making, the boondi thattu/plate has to be washed clean and wiped without any speck of water

Top with the fried cashews and curry leaves, close the lid after boondi cools down totally
