  • For making bonda batter take the besan, rice flour, red chilli powder, g&g paste, salt, cooking soda and mix well. Add water to make a thick batter. The consistency of batter should not be too thick or too thin. It should fall like a thick ribbon. I used 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp water. Take this as an approx measure.

  • Heat oil to deep fry. Check the temperature of oil by dropping a pinch of batter. If it rises immediately, oil temperature is right.
  • Now take a dough ball and dip in the bonda batter. Drop it in the oil immediately. Drop 3-4 balls in one batch. Cook until golden brown by turning the bonda whenever needed. Keep the flame medium. Drain the bonda in a tissue paper.

Serve with coconut chutney or tomato sauce ! Enjoy !
  • Do not add more rice flour. Usually besan and rice flour should be added in the ratio of 3:1 to get a thick coating. But here I used little more rice flour to maintain crispiness.
  • You can follow the same batter recipe for making bajii too.
  • Replace ginger&garlic paste with hing.
  • Potato is used as a binding agent for the dough. You can skip adding potatoes and use little corn flour and maida to make the tight dough.
Try this kids friendly evening snack for your daughter and son after they are back from school. Enjoy your tea time !
