1.when making sugar syrup,do not overcook, then laddoos cannot be made.
2.while frying boondis do not let the oil smoke,heat the oil first and keep the flame on moderate heat.
3.while rubbing butter, baking powder,salt,with your fingers do it till it looks frothy.this makes the dish flaky and soft when baked.
