MYSORE BONDA(using maida)

I tasted this Mysore  Bonda two years back when I went for  my nephew's wedding at Bangalore.  We were  staying in an apartment and my daughter was very  hungry.Though we were new to that place, myself and my daughter ventured out and saw  a snack counter nearby.  

When asked what is there to eat, the shop keeper said mysore bonda and tea/coffee is available.  When we saw him serving the hot bonda  and coffee/tea, we decided to order  that only.

To my surprise, it was awesome as I never tasted the maida version of bonda as I was familiar  with only Ulundu bonda.

This is a Karnataka special snack item which is paired with coconut chutney. For a change, you can indulge in such items  as now a days most people avoid usage of maida. This items should be prepared bit spicy then only we can really enjoy the taste of it.

Now let us look at the recipe now:        


1 cup  maida
1/4 cup rice flour
1/2 cup curd(beaten)
1  cup water

1 tbsp finely chopped green chilli (spicy one)
1 tbsp finely chopped ginger
2 tbsp  finely chopped coriander leaves
1 sprig of curry leaves broken with hands.

1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp coconut bits
1/2 tsp cooking soda
salt as  required
oil  for frying


Step 1

In a bowl, mix the rice flour, maida, cumin seeds, soda, salt well

Step 2

Add the curd and mix well.  Then add water and bring to a vada consistency batter.
or you can mix the curd and water or use butter milk.

Step 3

Mix the green chilli, cumin seeds, coconut bits, ginger,curry leaves, coriander leaves in it and keep aside for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Heat oil in kadai.  dip your hand water and take out some batter and drop in the oil.  Fry the same in medium hot oil till golden brown  till the batter is over.
