Nowadays Raksha asks some snacks to munch after coming from school.So i keep searching & thinking about instant snacks recipes and i am trying make it healthy too by adding vegetables.This is a very easy and instant bonda recipe.Usually bondas are made with leftover idli,dosa batter or urad dal & maida.But this version is with besan flour/kadalai maavu.Most of u would have seen these bondas in Tea stalls(tea kadai).An interesting thing is that it is also called as”South African chilli bites”Winking smile.I make this kind with leftover bajji/bonda mix by adding onions after making aloo bonda.It tastes great only when eaten hot hot !Do try this recipe for ur kids after they come from school.They’ll love it for sure ! U can also make it more healthy by adding vegetables like vegetable bonda.
