Motichur Laddu

Motichur Laddu is another famous sweet in India. It is made specially during Holi, Diwali and Ganesh Chaturthi festivals. It is made out of besan (Bengal gram flour) batter fried in ghee and simmered in sugar syrup and made laddus. Both boondi (the small beads made by frying) laddu and motichur laddu are made with besan batter only. The only difference between boondi laddu and motichur laddu is that boondi is fried in oil for normal laddu and colour is nt added. For motichur, boondi is fried in ghee. 
And, for boondi laddu, the beads (boondi)  needs to made in a slightly bigger size boondis and for motichur, it needs to be made very small and tiny.
