Add the food colors and mix well.
Heat oil on medium heat, pour the batter over the boondhi laddle and the tiny boondhi's will start falling. [Tap the laddle gently if needed].
Take out the boondhi once the oil stops sizzling. Continue the process and finish off the batter.
Crush a hand full of boondhi's in a mixie.
Take boondhi's in a bowl,add the crushed boondhi, fried items,rock candy and 2 laddles of hot sugar syrup and keep it for 5 minutes.
Stir it once and add the remaining hot sugar syrup, and keep aside for 1/2 an hour. Take little soaked boondhi and make the laddos.[you can apply little ghee on the palm.]
Try to mash the boondhis gently while making the laddos.
Don't worry if you are not able to make the correct shapes initially, the shape can adjusted after an hour.
Arrange the laddos in a wide plate, cover the plate loosely and keep in an airy place for couple of hours.
