Motichoor ladoos are delectable, round-shaped orange colored sweet treats that are a popular part of Indian cuisine1.

To make motichoor ladoos, tiny balls of chickpea flour (boondi) are deep-fried until they turn golden and crisp. These boondis are then mixed with a flavorful sugar syrup and shaped into neat round balls.

Motichoor ladoos are often enjoyed as festive sweets, desserts, or as a delightful treat with a cup of tea or coffee.
