Boondi/Boondhi ladoo is my all time favourite and waited to try in my hands for a long time. Usually, we used to call lattu/laddu as a pet name for our loved ones or kids because all are love the delicious ladoo, right? Making ladoo is my long time wish, last year I couldn't make it and now I tried the ladoo with my sithi’s help. We made it perfectly and I calm down and relaxed after shaping the ladoos and yeah it stays well.

I added green camphor, cloves and cardamom for the flavor. The camphor and clove flavor will enhance the aroma and taste of the Ladoo.  +Veena, she is my pair of this month of Shhh cooking secretly challenge. she has given two secret ingredients bengal gram flour and sugar. So no other delay, I have prepared the yummy boondi ladoo. Thank you sis for the wonderful ingredients and thanks +Priya aks for the opportunity...
