Sugar syrup with a consistency of one tread is required for making “Dorbesh”.
Turn the flame on and place a thick bottom pan with 4 cup sugar and around ¾ cup water and cook on high flame for around 1-2 minutes to melt the sugar completely.
Now cook for another 2-3 minute in medium flame and check the consistency of the sugar syrup. Take a 1-2 drop of syrup in a spoon and let it cool and after that check the consistency with the help of fingers. If the thread formed then switch off the flame immediately or else cook for another 1-2 minutes and check the consistency.
We need a semi-runny (not too thick) batter for Boondi / Bonde.
Mix Besan/gram flour along with rice flour and a pinch of baking soda properly.
the flour mixture with the help of a sieve. It’s better to take a big bottom bowl for making the batter.
Keep around 1 cup of water for making the batter but don’t add entire water in one go.
At first, add very little water to the flour mixture and whisk the batter scrupulously to dissolve all the lumps. After that, add rest of the water to the mixture to get a semi-thick consistency. I have used a ¾th cup of water for 2 cups of Besan.
Add 1 tbsp. of white oil in the mixture and mix it properly and give the batter a rest of around 20-30 minutes.
Chop dry fruits except for melon seeds roughly but don’t fry those.
We need warm sugar syrup for preparing D0rbesh.
Add all the dry fruits and green cardamom powder in the syrup and mix properly with the help of a ladle.
Now add entire boondi to the syrup and mix it again.
Add grated khowa and mix it properly.
Give the mixture a standing time of one hour.
Making of the Round wonders:
After that, wet your hand with some water and take 2-3 tbsp. of the mixture and make small round ball by pressing with the help of both the hand and make rest of the “Dorbesh” following the same process.
Amazing “Dorbesh's are ready but give those small wonders around 2 hours of standing time before eating!!!
Difference between Boondi Laddu and Darbesh:: We don’t add Khowa and rice flour while making boondi laddu but these two are required for Dorbesh.
