Step 2

Heat oil in a deep pan for frying the batter.

Now, take a perforated ladle and hold it on top of the pan and drop a little batter on to the perforated ladle such that little drops of the batter fall into the hot oil.

Step 4

Fry the batter droplets till they turn golden brown and drop them into the hot sugar syrup.

Do NOT fry them crisp or the laddoo won’t hold.

Leave the fried batter droplets to sit in the syrup for a minute and blend them in a mixer into smaller sized droplets.
