SWEET & SAVORY/SIHI & KHARA BOONDI KALU

Posted in : GOKULASHTAMI/JANMASHTAMI RECIPES, SNACKS / BAKED / DEEP FRIED / STEAMED, SWEETS / UNDE/LADDU / BURFI / HOLIGE/POORAN POLI / HALWA on by : Divya Suresh Tags:

One of the traditional sweet & savory combo for Deepavali. A bit time consuming dish but easy to make.  I mix the flour with water, first I make boondi for sweet version using the half of the flour, then to the same mixed batter add red chilli powder and salt and continue making boondi for savory version. But you can take separately at the beginning itself. The measurement of the ingredients given below makes both the sweet & savory boondi enough to serve for 4 people.
