BOONDHI LADDU


Very easy to make traditional sweet.This is a sweet which i have always feared is very difficult to make . I was told by my amma that laddu have to be made into balls while it was still hot. So i have never attempted to even  try this until my friend vijaya told me that it was very simple.
I think i have misunderstood my amma's statment or may be she thought i was  too young and could not handle the warm boondhi syrup.. any way .. its not hard :)
