Print Friendly and PDF
Kadalai maavu bonda recipe

I love tea kadai bonda made of kadalai maavu ( Besan flour). Some people call it as medhu bonda. I wanted to try this bonda recipe for long time. Nowadays Raksha asks me to prepare some snacks to munch after coming from school. So I keep searching and thinking about instant snacks recipes. I am trying to make it healthy too by adding vegetables.This besan flour bonda 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  you would have seen these bondas in Tea stalls( Tamil nadu tea kadai). An interesting thing is that it is also called as”South African chilli bites”. Usually I make this kind of bonda with leftover bajji bonda batter by adding onions. It tastes great only when eaten hot hot ! Do try this recipe for your 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.

Hi. Very late comment. But I feel it will be useful who read this hereafter. In shops too they add greens n name it as keera bonda. For healthy versionay add siru keerai or mulaikeerai

Chitra said...

Yes, I have heard about keerai bonda but never tasted it. I will try this variation. Its a healthy addition too.
