ABOUT Boondi Pak/Boondhi Pak/Sweet Boondi Squares RECIPE

Boondi pak, sounds interesting. This sweet is quite different one from the usual Diwali sweets we make out traditionally. Actually to be honest, this boondi pak is quite a delicious sweet which sounds almost like both Mysore pak and Boondi laddoo.
