 Mysore bonda recipe

Mysore bonda is one of the famous south indian recipes, specially from mangalorian cuisine.  These dumplings are crispy outside and spongy inside. It can be served either as a breakfast or a snack. The main ingredients for this bonda recipe are refined flour (maida) and yogurt ( or buttermilk).  We add baking soda (/soda), finely chopped onions, greenbchilles and coriander leaves additionally to enrich the taste. Mysore bonda goes well with coconut chutney, peanut chutney or sambar.

We will make bonda batter by mixing maida and curd(/ buttermilk). Fermentation of this Mysore bonda batter will give you an outstanding taste. You can make bonda without fermentaion also, but fermented batter will give you a different taste.

I usually mix the battter, previous night and left it overnight. And next morning, I will prepare Bonda. This gives me best results.
