Zatpat Besan Boondi Laddu - A to Z Maharashtrian Sweets
I never realized the last letter to cross will be a tough one. I was well prepared for the rest of the series and procrastinated for the last one, thinking it is such an easy one as the name says, that I could cook the day before. It surely was an easy one to make, however, I didn't take other things into consideration like the internet dying on me. Just as I was about to publish this post, the internet stopped working.
Anyway, I guess I can take things easy at times. While making the list, Z was a letter that eluded me for a long time. Everybody who suggested kept talking about Zunka. I had to keep reminding them that I was doing a series on Maharashtrian Sweets.
Then Pradnya suggested this recipe for a quick Boondi Laddoo using Besan. Her mom makes this whenever there was a need to make Boondi Laddo Zatpat and so this is called Zatpat, which means quick. We also use words like fatafat or this term at times, maybe more on the influence of Hindi on us.
This recipe takes about 20 to 30 mins, and the Zatpat refers more to the Boondi Laddu Style one getting done quickly. I am not very fond of sweets though I am partial to some homemade sweets. However, from the shops, I love Son papdi and Motichoor Laddoo, though in small bites.
I have already made Boondi Laddo before, so making one quickly was a nice experience as well.
