We add little red chilly powder, rice powder and salt while preparing the batter. This batter is poured in a filter spoon called as boondi spoon, which passes the batter to fall in drops.

Note:-

  • consistency of the batter plays an important role in shaping the boondi pearls.
  • if boondi is long the batter is little thick.
  • if boondi is flat the batter is watery and requires more gram flour.
  • drain the boondi pearls in a tissue to remove excess oil in it.
  • raita can be prepared with this Kara boondi.
