  Kara Boondhi, this was marked for last year diwalli, finally time came.. This is such a wonderful crunchy south Indian Snack.. kara mura Kara Boondhi is our Nagercoil special snack.. Did this with the exact copy cat of my home town version..
Last year i faced a big flop for this easy snack.. for this easy preparation i did some blunder by adding some baking soda in it and the batter goes splitted in the oil.. and this year when i was discussing some recipes with one of my Neighbour’s Mom, she told this simple variation.. Wow, and Big Wow.. such a beautiful easy preparation.. this one will be a Fail proof recipe.. Which hardly take 15 mins to finish the work.. This is my continuous 91st Post.. Days flew like a flash, i can’t believe i have completed three months of continuous Post..

Take the Boondhi Plate or do what i did, i used the Holed ladle, drop the spoon full of batter over the ladle and drop the bondhi’s, keep the ladle close to the pan, other wise balls will not form strings and tails.. don’t keep the ladle in same place, if the Pan is wide, then show all around the pan to avoid clumsiness..
