Mysore Bonda Recipe – Ingredients
Recipe Category: Snack | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian
Whole Urad Dal – 1/2 cup
Curry Leaves – 5 chopped roughly
Green Chilli – 1 medium sized finely chopped
Whole Pepper – 1 tsp
Coconut – 2 tbsp finely chopped
Rice Flour – 1 tsp
Hing – a pinch
Salt – to taste
Oil – to deep fry
- Soak urad dal for 2 hrs.Add water little by little and grind to a fluffy batter.Set aside.Chop green chillies and curry leaves and cut coconut into small pieces.
- Add coconut bits,curry leaves,pepper,rice flour to the urad dal batter and required salt and mix well.Heat oil in a kadai.When oil is heated – Grease your hand with water and make small balls and carefully drop it in preheated oil.
- Keep in low medium flame and cook till both sides are golden.Turn over and cook on both sides.Cook in low medium flame itself else the inside will not get cooked.
- Serve hot with coconut chutney the best combo!
- Make sure you grind the batter fine and fluffy. I used grinder for grinding the batter.You can even use mixie but the bondas will be slightly hard so I recommend using grinder.Also when we grind in mixie it will yield less volume when compared to grinding it in grinder.
- If you prefer you can add 1/4 tsp ginger chopped.
- Add salt only when you are ready to fry the bondas.Resting the batter with salt for more time will make the batter watery.
- The bondas should be light for that you should grind the batter perfectly with less water.
