Motichoor Ladoo

Motichoor Ladoo are traditional North Indian sweet made specially festivals.Thee ladoos are made of  very small gram flour balls or boondhi which are deep fried in oil or ghee then simmered in sugar syrup till they absorb the syrup. The preparation for Motichoor ladoo is same as Boondhi Ladoo. The word Motichoor literally translates to crushed pearls and honestly we think their couldn't have been a better name for the delicacy. Originally associated with states like Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh these ladoos were also easy to store in the torrid temperatures and wouldn't go bad for days.
