Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 15-20
  • Urad Dal dhuli (Black gram split and husked) - 1 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper powder - ½ tsp
  • Coconut flakes, shredded & unsweetened - 4 tbsp
  • Hing (Asafetida powder ) - a fat pinch
  • Ginger - 1 tsp, chopped into small pieces
  • Curry leaves - 8 to 10, chopped roughly
  • Oil - for greasing
  • Water - 2 cups
  1. Wash and rinse the dal till water runs clear. Now soak it in 2 cups of water for 2-3 hrs.
  2. Drain off excess water and make a smooth batter in an electric blender. If required, stop the blender in between to stir the batter and add 1-2 tsp of water to loosen up, just slightly.
  3. Add salt, black pepper powder, hing, ginger, coconut flakes, curry leaves to the dal batter. Mix well.
  4. Prepare the appe pan or paniyaram pan or abelskiever pan by oiling all the holes generously. Heat the pan on medium heat after oiling.
  5. Once the pan is hot, take 1 tbsp of batter and drop in each hole, evenly.
  6. Cover the pan with the lid for 2 minutes.
  7. Now remove the lid and cook further for 1 minute. It will be golden brown from the bottom by now.
  8. Brush the top of the Bonda with little oil and gently flip it with a wooden stick.
  9. Cook further for 2-3 minutes on medium heat till the bottom becomes golden too.
  10. Take out the Mysore Bonda from the pan and serve immediately hot with sambhar and chutney.
  11. It might take 2 to 3 rounds of making the bonda out of the batter.
You may alternatively deep fry these as well.
