  • 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 you drop the bonda in oil whereas very thick batter gives you hard bonda. So the quantity of water is very important. Do not add more cooking soda. Bonda absorbs more oil. Similarly do not avoid cooking soda. It makes the bonda hard and less crispy.

  • Heat oil to deep fry. Drop a pinch of batter and if it rises immediately,oil is ready.Now take the potato ball and dip in the batter.Coat the balls well with the batter and drop in the hot oil.Cook in medium flame by turning the bonda at regular intervals.Remove when it turns golden brown.Drain the oil in a tissue and serve hot with coconut chutney or tomato sauce ! Enjoy with hot tea !
