  • Make a small lemon sized balls out of the stuffing and keep them in a plate. In a wide bowl,take the besan flour,rice flour,red chilli powder,cooking soda,hing,salt and  pinch of food color if needed.Mix everything well.Add water and make a cream like paste.The batter should be thick and fall like a ribbon.Do not add more water and make the batter thin because thin batter makes tails while u drop the bonda in oil.Whereas very thick batter gives you hard bonda.So the quantity of water is very important.
