  • For the chutney:
  • Grated coconut - 1 cup
  • coriander leaves - 1 cup
  • mint leaves - 12
  • tamarind paste - 1 tsp
  • Green chilli - 1
  • salt - to taste
  • For the batter:
  • gram flour - 2 tbsp
  • Plain flour - 2 tbsp
  • Ajwain seeds - 1/4 tsp

How to make Egg and Chutney Bondas

  1. Hard boil the eggs. Drain, peel and keep aside.
  2. Grind together all the ingredients for the chutney in a food processor/ blender, scraping down the sides at intervals, until you get a smooth-ish paste. Resist the urge to add water.
  3. Transfer to an air tight container and refrigerate till ready to use.
  4. Mix together all the dry ingredients for the batter in a mixing bowl and add enough water to make a thick batter, almost paste-like.
  5. Make sure its not too loose, or else it won't stick to the egg. That said, if it does end up being too loose, just add some more flour to get the desired consistency. Or if too thick, loosen it with water, 1 tsp at a time.
  6. When ready to cook, heat oil in a deep pan.
  7. Wrap the coconut chutney around the egg tightly and make into a smooth ball. Do so with all the eggs, making sure you don't over do the chutney on each egg.
  8. Cover the balls in batter and drop them into the hot oil.
  9. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towels.
  10. Serve hot with spicy ketchup.

My Tip:

Make the chutney the previous day to save time. Bring it out to room temperature half an hour before making the bondas. If the chutney has dried a bit the next day, stir in 2 tsp of water so it would stick to the eggs. Please add water bit by bit because once it becomes too watery, there is no way to fix it.
