Kara boondi & oma podi are Raksha’s most favorite snacks recipes. So we used to buy them from snacks shops very often. Recently we bought a pack of colorful kara boondi from Lakshmi Sweets. We call this as muttai kara boondhi as it is round in shape. For every Diwali, I used to make oma podi. But the colorful and spicy boondi tempted me to give a try.So I prepared Kara boondi recipe at home for the first time. I have tried it thrice since yesterday. First I made boondi adding besan flour, rice flour and cooking soda just like my bajji recipe. It came out crispy, crunchy but it was oily too. So this morning,I again tried it by watching Nisha Madhulika & Vahchef’s basic boondi recipe video. The recipe was so simple with just 2 ingredients. When I tried it ,I was extremely happy with the results.It was so crunchy and not oily at all .I was very happy that I learnt how to make perfect boondi recipe without tails or flat boondi.This is an all rounder recipe. By following this recipe, you can make sweet boondi, boondi ladoo, South Indian kara boondi/Spicy boondi mixture ( Tamil nadu style), North Indian style boondi namkeen, boondi raita & boondi chaat as well. One can make so many yummy teatime boondi snacks. I too made it colorful like in shops. Raksha and Sendhil loved it a lot. We enjoyed it with Sambar rice & munched it in my teatime .
