How to make Kara Boondhi?

This Boondhi can be made with any Perforated ladle. (Ladle with holes)
Take the flours in a broad bowl and mix with chilli powder, salt, hing and baking soda with hand.
Add water little by little and bring it to dosa batter consistency. Slightly thicker than milkshake consistency.
Heat Oil in a pan.
Once the oil is well heated, Hold the perforated ladle above the pan.
With another ladle take the batter and pour it on the perforated ladle.
You can see the balls pouring in to the oil.
Fry them till the noise of the oil subsides and transfer them to a kitchen tissue or towel.
Don't pour too much of batter at a time in to the ladle. The balls will stick with one another.
In a sautéing pan fry the dry fruits and nuts of your choice and curry leaves in oil and add to the  fried boondhis and mix well.
After they get cooled down store in air tight box.
