I am posting yet another deep-fried snack adapted happily from Samaiththu paar ( சமைத்துப் பார் ) cook book by S. Meenakshi Ammal. Very simple, easy to make it is one evening time snack that can be conjured up with ingredients that will mostly be readily available in most Indian households.
Semolina/ Bombay Rawa 1/2 cup
Thick yoghurt (slightly sour) 1/4 cup
Green Chillies 4 pieces
Curry leaves few
Coriander leaves about 15 strands
Ginger a small piece
Cashew nuts 10 Optional
Asafoetida 1/4 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying. ( the author has recommended use of vanaspathi....our grandmothers..were a different generation)
Mix all the ingredients listed above from Semolina thro' salt. Keep aside for an hour.
Heat oil in a deep pan and deep fry small lemon size balls until golden brown. These bondas are on the crisper side.
Serve with green chutney, recipe of which is given below.
The above quantity makes 15 such bondas.
Grind to a chutney the following
Coconut 2 tablespoons dessicated
Green chillies 2 large
Coriander leaves a fist full
Juice of 1/2 a lemon or 2 tablespoons yoghurt
Serve this with bondas.
I am sending these to
