Mysore Bonda/Mysore Bajji

Back home mom always had a snack ready when me and my brother got back from school. And during the monsoons, she  made mysore bondas and bajjis. I have no idea why they call them mysore bondas but I enjoyed eating them.
Crispy on the outside, soft and spongy on the inside they were just perfect. Mom served them with coconut or peanut chutney or tomato ketchup.
Its been cold for the past few days and the weather made me crave for something hot and spicy. What better excuse to make these glorious bondas. So lets dive into the recipe.

2 cups Maida
1/2 cup sour curd/yogurt
1/2 tsp jeera
Salt to taste
1 medium chopped onion
3-4 chopped green chillies finely chopped(to taste)
12-14  curry leaves chopped
A pinch of baking soda
water  as required.

  • In a bowl  add maida, curd, , salt,  and combine adding little water at a time till u reach the consistency of idli batter without forming lumps.
  • Leave a side for 3-4 hrs.
  • Mix in onion, green chillies, jeera, curry leaves and baking soda just before deep frying. Check for seasoning.
  • Heat oil to deep fry. Drop batter into the oil with a spoon or by hand (which ever is convenient) and fry till golden brown on medium flame.
  • Remove onto a paper towel.
  • Serve hot with ketchup or peanut chutney.
  • Enjoy!!!
