Mysore Bonda/Ulundu bonda is a popular South Indian Tea time snack.
This Mysore special bonda is a No Onion No garlic recipe and goes well with Coconut chutney.
- 1/2 Cup Whole Urad dal
- 1 tbsp Rice flour
- 2 tsp Pepper
- 2 tbsp Coconut pieces (Thinly sliced)
- 2 springs Curry leaves (chopped)
- A pinch Asafoetida
- As per taste Salt
- For Frying Oil
1) Wash and Soak whole Urad dal for 1 hour.
2) Drain water from Urad dal and grind to smooth paste by adding little water. You can either use mixer or Grinder to grind the Urad dal but make sure to add less water while grinding.
3) Add Pepper, Rice flour, Curry leaves, Coconut pieces, Salt and mix well.
4) Heat oil in a kadai, make round shapped balls of batter and drop it in hot oil to cook in medium flame.
5) After one side is cooked, flip it around. Remove the bonda from oil when both sides are cooked and drop it in paper napkins to remove excess oil.
Tasty Mysore bondas/Ulundu bonda are ready.
1) You can also add Finely chopped Coriander leaves, or Finely chopped Green chillies, Or finely chopped Ginger or all the three according to your taste.
2) If you add excess water while grinding Urad dal it will drink lots of oil while frying so be careful while grinding. I always prefer grinder to grind for this bonda and medhu vadai as it grinds to smooth batter with less water. If you are grinding using a mixer, add little water now and then to grind and alternatively if you dont add enough water mixer will not grind and will get stuck.
3) Before dropping the batter in oil, wet your hands in water and take little batter and gently roll it. If you find it difficult, take the batter in a spoon and drop it in oil.
