Take sugar, saffron strands and water in a pan and put it over low flame.
Cook the syrup till a single string consistency is achieved. Keep the sugar syrup hot.
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan.
Mix besan, cardamom powder together and add water to it to form a batter.
To check the consistency of the boondi batter drop a few droplets of the batter in hot oil, if it becomes flat, the batter is thin and if it has peaks, the batter is thick.
To make the batter thick add some more besan and to make the batter thin add some water.
To make boondis, hold a perforated ladle over hot oil, using a spoon spread the boondi batter over the perforated spoon; make sure that the perforated spoon and the pan don’t have much height between them or else the boondis will not be round.
Do not over fry the boondis and do not crisp them.
Remove them from oil once the oil stops to sizzle and put it in the sugar syrup. Strain the boondis from the syrup.
Mix the boondis with almond slivers and goji berries and add around a tbsp of ghee for the binding.
Make golf sized roundels and shape them. Use ghee so the mixture does not stick on hands.
