I tried making these at home. The flavor was good, but still not like store-bought quality. What am I doing wrong? The finished laddus didn't stick together too well. (I'm thinking that either I didn't cook the syrup long enough or there was too much syrup in my final product.) After I formed the laddus, I puts them in the fridge so they could hold there shape better. The taste is terrific, but the boondis themselves are a bit chewy. Shouldn't they be more like "melt-in-you-mouth"? I didn't wait for the boondis to lightly brown, I just took them out of the oil as soon as they puffed. Is that the mistake I made? Cause I thought that if I fry them longer, they wouldn't soften in the syrup properly. I also didn't use ghee for calorie reasons, but did that make a difference too? I really want them to turn light like restaurant/store-bought kinds. I live in a city where Indian sweets are NOT readily available, so that is why I'm making them myself for my daughter's graduation party.
