challa punugulu recipe | bullet bonda recipe | dahi bonda | bullet bajji with step by step photo and video recipe. pakoda or bajji or any deep-fried snacks recipes are super popular across indian cuisine. these are generally prepared with besan or corn flour, but can also be prepared with other less popular flour like wheat or maida flour too. one such simple and easy plain flour-based deep-fried bonda or bajji is challa punugulu recipe from andhra cuisine known for its size and crispy taste.

this recipe has a strong resemblance to my hometown popular goli baje recipe. the ingredients list is very similar but different in size and shape. as matter of fact, in goli baje there are more set of ingredients like dry coconut, herbs and spices whereas in this recipe it is topped with basic spices. yet the major difference is the size. these challa punugulu or bullet bajji are tiny in size. hence when served in large numbers, it makes it very attractive and appetising. typically, you may not need anything and can easily gulp these hot bajji’s, yet the freshly prepared coconut chutney makes it an ideal snack meal. i would recommend you to try this snack once and let me know your thoughts on this snack.

in addition, some more tips, additional variants and suggestions to make a perfect challa punugulu recipe. firstly, the recipe is ideally prepared using maida or plain flour which helps to make this round in shape. yet, you can try these yummy snacks with wheat flour or a combination of both. i personally like the plain flour one, but you need healthy you can use wheat flour. secondly, you may take some time in beating the batter and eventually release these into the hot oil. the scoop has to be a small one and has to be released quickly to form a ball-like shape. lastly, if you take some time in releasing these to oil, try to fry them in small batches. by the time you release the 10th one, the first one may already be cooked. so keep an eye on the initial drops.
