Kara Boondi a popular South Indian savory snack and is specially made during Diwali. As Diwali is nearing I wanted to try my hands on those which I haven’t posted yet. So this year I am starting with Kara Boondi. This is also an easy recipe which is made of gram flour as the main ingredient.
The main point that should be taken care while making this boondi is the consistency of the batter. Rest, everything will fall into the place. Make sure to mix the batter well without any lumps. The batter should be slightly watery than idli batter and slightly thicker than dosa batter. That is between idli and dosa batter consistency. If water is more you will end up with flat boondis. In such case add more gram flour. If water is less you will end up with tail boondis. In such case add little water. i.e. when you pour batter on the perforated ladle, boondis should fall as pearls. This is the right consistency. Before directly adding batter to the hot oil. Just check by pouring in the perforated ladle as such. While pouring batter it should automatically start to drop as pearls. You need not rub or dab the ladle. Also, make sure to wipe the ladle for each batch.

Use 2 separate perforated ladles. One for making boondi and the other for removing boondi from the oil. The basic boondi which is made can be used in raita, mixture or in any other recipes which call for boondi. I have tempered boondi with Homemade Ghee as it gives a nice aroma it, so don’t skip it. Also for spice, I used chili powder, you can even add pepper powder. Those who don’t eat garlic, skip it and instead add hing while sauteeing. Now let us see how to prepare this recipe.
Crispy and crunchy Kara Boondi is ready to relish with a hot cup of tea/coffee.
