BONDA SOUP, URID BONDA IN LENTIL SOUP

Dear Friends,

I am happy to announce that this post is my 1000th post.  It is a great achievement for me as far as I am concerned.  I could not have been successful without your support, encouragement.

I sincerely thank each one of you and my family members on this occasion and the God who has created varieties of  vegetables, fruits and other items for making lovely dishes for human consumption and for sharing and caring.

Let me turn to the recipe now:

This recipe is of Karnataka State.  In Tamil Nadu and Kerala, we make Rasam Vada. The Bonda soup is somewhat similar to that but the soup is made out of three dals  viz. tur, moong and masoor.    This is quite healthy and delicious too. 

 The variation in the soup is in rasam we add tamarind  but in the soup, it is avoided.

The bonda or vada in the hot soup is really awesome.  You can make the Bonda Soup with the left over vada also.

Let us look at the recipe now:
