TIPS:

1. To check syrup consistency, take some syrup on forefinger & when your forefinger and your thumb are pulled apart gently it should form 1 string. If string doesn't form cook at 1 min intervals & keep checking. If 1 string is reached, keep the flame off.
2. For boondi prepare free flowing batter like Pakoda mixing little water at a time. For perfect consistency, batter when poured with a spoon should fall freely.
3. You can also divide boondi batter into 3 parts for making three colors boondi (e.g. green color Boondi).
4. To check batter consistency, add a drop in oil with a spoon, if it is round in shape then it's perfect. If it falls flat it means water is more. Add 1 Tsp Besan more & adjust the consistency. Add more if needed. If it does not fall freely add more water.
5. Pour batter in oil starting from center towards the end & let boondi fall itself in oil. Do not use spoon to spread the batter or else Boondi won't turn out round in shape.
6. Ensure Boondi Jara is washed or wiped for each lot to ensure perfect round Boondis.
7. Boondi should be poured in slightly warm syrup. Check syrup temperature & reheat to lukewarm temperature if needed.
