Bonda - Urad Dal Bonda

Bondas are a popular evening snack, which are served along with white coconut chutney. They are so good with a cup of warm filter coffee for evening snacks. Bondas are a type of snack similar to ulundha vada.


Although both the ulundha vada and bonda include the same ingredients, these two differ in the making process. For bondas we don't add chopped onions but we add chopped ginger, green chillies and few coconut bits. After grinding the batter, simply mix all the ingredients together and fry the bondas.As I told in my medu vada post, for bondas also I recommend to grind it in a wet grinder. Because it gives you a soft texture for the bondas. Grind it in a wet grinder for 20 minutes until smooth and fluffy. If required just add 1/4 cup of water while grinding. Also, do not add salt during grinding because it makes the batter watery then you can't able to make the balls. If you are grinding in a mixer jar, try to soak for 3 to 4 hours and then grind it by sprinkling a handful of water. Grinding the batter in a mixer jar without water is very difficult. If you add more water while grinding, it will be difficult to roll the balls perfectly.
