About Motichoor Ke Ladoo :

In the Hindi language, the word ‘Moti’ means pearl and ‘Choor or Chur’ means to crush or crumble. Meaning to crumbled pearls. Actually, when you hold this ladoo in your hand and even apply a little pressure, they crumble as they are so soft and delicate that while eating also they fall apart. Even after days the softness remains the same. The main ingredient here is the gram flour. It is also known as besan in Hindi . For making this recipe use the finer variety of gram flour and not the coarser variety. Even sieve the gram flour before start mixing flour for making boondhi. If you plan to make the motichur laddu, for any pooja, then I do suggest adding a pinch of edible camphor in them. So that you get a prasadham smell and flavor. You can also fry the boondi in ghee. Generally, most food offered for naivedyam, are made in cow’s ghee. Desi ghee is mainly used for religious purposes. Store the motichoor laddo in air tight box for a week. Please do share this recipe with your family and friends. Enjoy this Diwali with the home made tasty sweets.

Add water little by little. Mix well without any lumps. We need a thick flowing batter to make boondhi. Check the right consistency. The batter should not be thin nor thick.
  • Preheat oil in a kadai. Using boondhi Jhara / Boondhi making laddle. Place a height steel box near by the handle close to the stove and tap on it. So that while you tap it doesnt touches the Kadai. As the boondi is very little it gets cooked faster. Mix and take the boondhi. Am using steel filters to take the boondi. Place the boondhi in a kitchen cloth or tissue so that excess oil is absorbed. Make all the boondhi in the similar way. Check the boondhi is seperate pearls. You can also fry the boondhi in ghee to get a rich taste and flavour.

Notes

Notes:
Make sure the boondhi batter is in correct consistency. It should either be thick nor thin it should be a thick flowing batter.
Make sure you use a tiny holed motichoor laddle or boondi jhara with tiny holes.
If you dont have one use jalli karandi covered with aluminium foil and make tiny holes in it to get a tiny boodhi.
Keep note that while making sugar syrup we no need single string consistency. The syrup should be sticky.
Make sure you drain excess oil from the boondhi otherwise you get oil smell and also the texture will differ
Allow to cool well. We no need to make ladoo when the mixture is hot. 
Once its cooled down but still warm we can able to make ladoo. then only we did it in correct way.
Drain excess oil in a kitchen tissue or kitchen towel
Before adding boondhi to syrup the boondhi should be seperate pearls.
before adding boondhi to syrup make sure its sticky so that the boondi absorbs the syrup. if the syrup is watery boondhi becomes mushy in water. keep an eye.
after adding boondi make sure u keep in low flame and mix well
when the mixture becomes thick switch off immediately and transform to a tray. dont keep in the same kadai.
