14 Jun

Ullipaya Bonda


Plain Flour/ Maida 3 cups
Plain Yogurt 1 cup
Onion 1 small
Green Chiles 2
Curry Leaves 3
Salt few pinches
Oil for deep frying

Method of preparation:

Peel and finely chop onion.
Remove stems, wash and finely chop green chiles.
Wash and tear the curry leaves.

In a mixing bowl, slowly mix plain flour, yogurt and salt together with required amount of water.
The flour mixture needs to be flowy but tight.
Leave the flour mixture covered for atleast 3 hours.
Finally add chopped onion, green chiles and curry leaves to the above mixture just before making.

Heat oil in wok to medium high heat smoking hot, take golf sized balls out of the mixture and drop slowly in oil.
Repeat the same until the wok is full.
Fry each one until golden brown on both sides.
Remove onto absorbent paper and repeat the same with remaining mixture.
Serve hot with any chutney.

Notes: Add a pinch of soda-bi-carb to bonda mixture if bonda doesn’t seem to be soft and puffed up.

    I love these bondas, last time i had them i think it was before marriage.

    Hi Raji,
    Those look yummy, we call these Mysore Bonda in Karnataka! Perfect for an evening snack.

    Hi, I love your site. I’ve saved SO MANY recipes. Thanks for all the great ideas. I really want to make these this weekend, but I have one question…What do you mean by plain flour/ Maida? Is that All Purpose flour found in regular grocery stores or do I need to buy Indian roti flour? My mom gave me some Besan flour…would that work? Thanks again!

    When the mixture is mixed right, the maida in the mixture feels like elastic. It flows but the molecules are bound and looks tight when dropped from height. hope it helps
