Mysore Bonda or Ulundu Bonda

Ingredients to make Mysore Bonda or Ulundu Bonda

  • urad dal - 200 grams
  • Raw rice -1 tablespoon
  • green chillies -4 nos finely chopped
  • peppercorns -2 teaspoons
  • Chopped coconut pieces -1 tablespoons
  • curry leaves a few

How to make Mysore Bonda or Ulundu Bonda

  1. Wash and soak the urad dal and raw rice for 1/2 hour.
  2. Drain the water and grind them to a thick fluffy consistency maavu (batter), adding very little water and required amount of salt.
  3. Transfer the maavu (batter) to a vessel then add green chillies, chopped coconut pieces, peppercorns, curry leaves, asafoetida, mix everything well. Check for salt.
  4. Heat oil in a kadhai, 1wet your fingers and take small quantity of the batter and make medium sized balls.
  5. Now check whether the oil is hot by dropping a small piece of the batter into it, if the batter rises immediately then the oil is ready for frying.
  6. Gently drop the ball of batter into the oil. cook it until it gets a crispy golden brown color on top and till the bubbling of oil stops.
  7. Server hot with chutney or sauce.

My Tip:

The ulundu maavu or batter should be thick and fluffy. Always remember that if you want crispy bondas the consistency of the batter is very important IT SHOULD NOT BE WATERY. The temperature of the oil also plays an important role. It should not be too hot.
