Spicy Boondi is a teatime snack.

  • Curry leaves - few leaves
  • Oil for frying

  • Add turmeric powder, asafoetida powder, chilly Powder and salt to the besan flour and mix well.
  • Add water to the flour mix to make the batter smooth (slightly thicker than dosa batter).
  • For making Boondi we need a perforated spoon (laddle with small holes)
  • Heat oil in a pan .
  • Hold the laddle above the hot oil (1 - 1½ inch above) and pour 2-3 spoon batter to the ladddle and rub with another spoon.
