Mysore Bonda/ Ulundhu bonda

This is very similar to ulundhu vadai. Much simpler to make because you just dont have to worry about the perfect round shapes with the perfect holes!! Just simply scoop the batter in your fingers and roll them into a ball shape and then fry them.

One of the very few things my fussy daughter just loves!!........phew! Thank God for that!



INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup urad dal/ ulundhu, heaped
1 small onion, chopped finely
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1 tbsp corander leaves and  curryleaves , chopped (optional)
1 tbsp basmathi rice OR 1-2 tsps rice flour
1 tbsp peppercorn
2 tbsps coconut bits
a pinch of chopped ginger (optional)
salt to taste
oil for frying



PROCESS:
  • Soak the urad dal and basmathi rice (if u are using) together for about 3-4 hours.
  • Wash well and drain. In a food processor, blend the urad dal and rice with only necessary amount of water to form a paste. The more water you add the more oil it will absorb while frying.
  • Transfer the batter into a bowl and add the above ingredients and mix well

  • Heat oil for frying. To check if the oil is ready for frying, drop a tiny bit of batter into the oil. If it sinks to the bottom and them immediately rises to the surface its ready.
  • keep a bowl of water near you to dip your fingers each time you scoop some batter (so it doesnt stick to your hands) Shape the batter into balls of desired size and drop them into the oil. cook on low or medium flame.
  • when it starts browning flip them over .
  • drain on a kitchen towel.
