Bondas are of many kinds. Medu bonda made out of urad dal, potato bonda, Mangalore bonda made of mildly fermented or sour maida. Each has its own unique taste and can be safely said that as a snack has few parallel and as the most loved. Though I make all these bondas now and then, I tried bread bonda recently. It is pretty easy to make. Here is the recipe’:
1 loaf salt bread
4 no. potato(large)
1 no. onion(large)
5 no. green chilli
¼ cup fresh coriander, cut into bits
¼ tsp mustard seeds
½ tsp urad dal
1 no. red chilli
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp dhania powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp gharam masala
As required oil to fry
½ tsp armchur
• Boil the potato, peel the skin and mash.
• Cut the onion, ginger, green chillies into small bits
• Heat a saucepan, drop 4 tsp oil, mustard seeds- red chilli- urad dal, allow the combine to sputter and pop. Now drop cut ginger- green chillies-onion bit and stir for 5 minutes. Now add mashed potatoes, turmeric powder, gharam masala, salt and armchur. Mix them all well and let the filling get thicker such that balls can be made.
Making of the bonda:
Take the bread, cut the slices of the sides. Wet your hand and take a slice at a time and moisten the slice to make it soft. On the wet slice put poatao masala and wrap round to make bonda. In this way keep ready all slices for frying and gather them in a plate.Fry these in oil till golden brown.
The final product will be crisp and tasty. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or sauce as per individual taste.
