Mysore-bonda
   I recently became a fan of this Mysore bonda AKA Ulundu bonda. I tasted this in my periyamma’s house. Actually I helped her in making this bonda,while she kept ready the batter ground. We made in large numbers and I totally loved making balls (that too bigger size bondas) and deep frying them in a big kadai…… and a big laddle……,fun!!. Its crisp out and soft inside,love the coconut bits the best in this one. Yesterday I ground batter for vadai for aadi perukku and decided to make bondas in the evening and post it here in my blog!

  7. Drop in oil carefully. Lower the flame and cook both sides until golden in colour. When you turn over to cook the other side,you can keep the flame in medium high. Just make sure the inside gets cooked. For this you have to cook slowly.

Notes
  • I used only little more than 1/4 cup water. This varies upon the uraad dal quality.
  • If your batter is not good for making shapes,keep in the fridge for an hour and then try making.
  • If you want you can add a green chilli and a piece of ginger while grinding. You can also add a tsp of jeera along with pepper.
  • If your urad dal is old and less in quality, you may not get more volume of batter,apparently you will get less numbers of bondas.

We had it with coconut chutney, which is the best combo!

  15. Hi Raji i have never tried making bondas as i don know how they get ball shaped bondas in hotels... you are an expert in getting the right shapes no matter whether it is bonda or vadai... you really have a nice "kai pakuvam"... yesterday i made kaju katli which was a super hit at home... i stil don have the confidence to make bondas... yours looks truly awesome :-)

  16. Superb clicks, Raji. Bondas looks crisp and well shaped. I know it is not easy to get these beautifully shaped balls. Though one tends to think shaping vada is more difficult.
