How to make Mysore Bajji / Mysore Bonda

One of Karnataka's favorite, a hot delicious snack, Mysore bajji, also known as Mysore Bonda. A perfect combination to go with your evening tea.

How to make perfect mysore bajji or mysore bonda
Ingredients :

All purpose flour / Maida - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/4th cup
Butter milk - 1 cup
Cumin Seeds
Chopped ginger - 1 sp
Chopped green chillies - 1 sp
Chopped coconut - 1 sp (optional)
Cooking soda - 1/2 sp
Salt to taste


1. Take all purpose flour in a mixing bowl, add rice flour, cooking soda and salt and mix well. Keep adding butter milk and make a nice batter. The consistency should be like this in the picture

2. Due to butter milk and soda it gets puffed up a little. Keep it aside for 10 min

3. After 10 min add cumin seeds, chopped ginger, green chillies and coconut if you are using. (i did not use ). You can make it right away or let it rest for 1 hour, more softer bajjis you will get

4. Now, wet your hands and take the batter in small dumplings and drop it in the oil. The oil should be medium to low heat. The bondas automatically become round, fry them till you get a nice brown color and serve it with any chatni of your choice

[Note:If the bondas are turning flat, add bit of maida to it, you will get perfect mysore bajjis :)]
