Rava bonda recipe/ quick bonda recipe

Rava bonda is a quick breakfast recipe. This recipe mainly consists of maida flour and rava. It is a very tasty recipe and easy to prepare. On  your lazy weekends, this recipe can be special breakfast and quick too. You can prepare this recipe as snack item.

Rava bonda is little similar to Mysore bonda, only difference is adding rava instead of maida alone. Here we keep the batter for half an hour aside which makes bonda, spongy texture from inside. You can also add finely chopped ginger pieces also for additional taste.

Rava bonda goes well with peanut chutney. (For chutney recipe click the above highlighted  link.) For more breakfast recipes, please go to Breakfast recipes.
