This is a guest post for Nupur of UK-Rasoi. Nupur has a wonderful blog with interesting recipes. When she asked me to be part of her “Be My Guest” series, I gladly accepted. Thanks Nupur for having me as your guest. I chose this snack that is loved by most people and is also easy to make.
I normally try a low fat version of any snack using the kuzhi paniyaram pan and did the same for bonda too. But, though the bonda was cooked properly it did not puff up. So I stuck with the deep fried version. The kids loved it and I had a hard time clicking the pictures because they were standing right next to me asking for bondas . They were glad when I announced that the photos were done and the next minute the bowl was empty. The best accompaniment to bonda is coconut chutney. Off to the recipe.
- 1 cup urad dal (Ulutham paruppu)
- A pinch of baking soda (Optional)
- 1 green chilly thinly sliced
- 1/4 tsp peppercorns (slightly crushed)
- 1 tbsp rice flour
- Oil to deep fry
Bondas were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. They were all gone in a matter of minutes.
