Onion Bonda

After continuous trials, i was able to make soft bondas. My husband love bonda and my daughter like them with sauce. But i couldnt make soft bondas and finally by adjusting the ingrediants slightly here and there i found the perfect measurement and finally could make tasty bondas. This is very simple to make and a delicious snack variety suited best for evenings with a cup of hot filter coffee :)

Items Required:

Besan flour - required amount.
Salt, chilly powder - required amount.
A pinch of hing
Onion, green chilly, corriander leaves - chopped.
Oil - for deep frying
Dosa/idly batter - 1/2 cup


Put all the above ingredients in a bowl. Do not add water to the mix. Now heat oil in a kadai. Once the oil is heated nicely, take 1 or 2 tablespoon full of oil and pour it to the bowl where the ingredients are there. Slowly mix the oil and the items. Take care not to hurt your hand. Now add required amount of water and keep it aside.
Now take small ball amount of the batter and drop it carefully to the oil.
Turn all the sides till the bondas becomes golden brown in colour. Remove and serve hot with a cup of coffee :)

Note: Adding the dosa/idly batter to the bonda mix really adds taste and brings the softness to the bonda than adding rice flour. Make sure to heat oil and add the oil to the mix before adding water. Tomato sauce or coconut chutney are best combinations for this :)
