well, to be honest, there are many names for this urad dal bonda recipe in the market. some call it bonda and some prefer to call this recipe as deep fried vada. i personally like this recipe to be termed as bonda due to it bulgy round ball shape. anyway, there is another misconception in the market and is termed as mysore bonda recipe too. well according to me mysore bonda is made from maida or plain flour, similar to mangalore bajji or goli baje. the only difference between mysore and mangalore bajji is the fermentation process used in the later one. anyway, whatever the confusion around the name is, it is a lip smacking deep fried snack and can be served any time during the day.

furthermore some easy and important critical tips, suggestions and variations to the urad dal bonda recipe. firstly, i have used mixer grinder to ground the urad dal batter to a smooth and fluffy paste. but if you have access to a wet grinder, then it should be your first preference compared to the mixer grinder. secondly, the batter is no fermentation and it should not be allowed to rest as compared to any other deep fried batter. in addition, if you are using the batter later sometime, do not add salt and keep it in the refrigerator. lastly, deep fry these in small batches in a medium to low heat. you can keep the flame in high while doping these to oil, but switch to medium immediately.

notes:
