For the boondi
Preheat the oil in a wok to fry the boondi. After, a while add 2-3 drops of paste into it to check the temperature of the oil. In case the boondi starts floating on the surface of the oil in the wok, it indicates that oil is as hot as it is required. Hold a ladle above the wok and start adding the paste over it. The boondi will itself move into the oil from the holes of the ladle.
Fry the boondi in the hot oil until it is golden brown in colour. Boondis are fried and they appear crispy. Filter the boondi out of the oil using a strainer. Place the strainer on the plate so that extra oil moves in the place. Prepare the boondi out of the remaining paste in an exact way.
