onion bonda recipe | vengaya bonda | eerulli bonda & red chutney recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. bonda recipes are generally made with a choice of flour like maida or urad dal with a crisp texture. but it is not limited to these flours and can be made with other flours with a combination of vegetables. one such recipe is the onion bonda recipe made with the combination of sliced onions with gram flour coating for a crisp and tasty snack.

street food and deep-fried snacks are very much synonymous with indian cuisine. especially with the south indian cuisine, it is mostly bonda, bajji’s and pakora’s. but the onion bonda is the new entry which is very much influenced by the crispy onion pakora or pakoda from the kadhi pakoda recipe. the uniqueness of this recipe is the crispiness it has to offer from the outer surface and the softness on the inside. hence this bonda can also be served between a pav bread-like vada pav. moreover, with this recipe, i have specifically chosen a spicy red chatni recipe which is very much inspired by schezwan chutney. it makes an ideal dip to this crispy bonda snack, but can also be served with many other deep-fried snacks.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the onion bonda recipe. firstly, the most critical part of this recipe is the chopping of onions. it shouldn’t be finely chopped, at the same time it shouldn’t be diced. i have sliced these onions thinly, and cut it into 3 equal parts. in this way, it would easily hold the besan batter to form a round ball. secondly, if you wish to have crisper, you can either add more rice flour or cornflour with gram flour. in addition, you can also add other vegetables like capsicum, or any leafy vegetables. lastly, make sure the dough is tight with less water content so that it does not absorb more oil. also deep fry these in small batches and do not overcrowd them in your deep frying pan.

finally, i would like to mention my other related street food recipes collection with this post of onion bonda recipe. it includes my other similar recipes like masala mirchi bajji, kanda bhaji pav, onion samosa, stuffed onion rings, pyaz ki kachori, onion rings, mysore bonda, tomato bajji, veg bonda, aloo bonda. further to these i would also like to mention my other related recipe categories like,
