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
In a bowl, mix the rice flour, maida, cumin seeds, soda, salt well
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.
Mix the green chilli, cumin seeds, coconut bits, ginger,curry leaves, coriander leaves in it and keep aside for 30 minutes.
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.
How to serve:
