Mysore Bonda Recipe/Urad dal Bonda Recipe/How to make Mysore Bonda with step by step photos

Our families all time favorite is my mom’s special Mysore Bonda. My little girl is crazy about Mysore Bondas. Even if I plan to make Urad dal Vadai, I will always set aside one portion of batter just to make bondas for her. So this special Mysore Bonda is for all fathers out there, Wishing all Fathers a Happy Father’s Day. Meanwhile do check out other interesting and mouth-watering Starters/Appetizers/Evening Snacks here.

So here’s Mysore Bonda with step by step photos…

Whole Urad dal/Ulundhu
1 cup
Black pepper corns
1 tbsp
Cumin Seeds
1 tsp
Rice Flour
2 tsp
Fresh coconut pieces
2 tbsp
Green chillies
2 or 3 finely chopped
½ inch piece finely chopped
One pinch
Curry leaves & Coriander leaves
2 tbsp finely chopped
As needed
For frying
Wash and soak the urad dal for at least 2- 3 hrs, then wash it once again and grind it in the mixer or grinder by adding very little water. Now transfer it to a bowl.

Add rest of all the ingredients except the oil and mix well.

Heat oil in a kadai, keep a small bowl of water and wet your hands. Now make small balls and drop it in the oil carefully.

When dropping the bondas, lower the flame. Let the bondas cook until golden brown color in medium flame on both the sides, now take it out and drain it in paper towel.

Delicious Mysore bondas are ready, serve them hot with coconut chutney or sambar.

Be careful when grinding the batter , adding very less water will make the bondas very rubbery and more water the bondas will drink all the oil when frying.
If you are not able to make proper shapes, keep the batter in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Cook the bondas on medium flame, if the flame is high the bondas will turn brown but the inside will remain uncooked.
