Hot Cocoa Bonda
This recipe has been viewed 869 times
Bonda is a famous snack in South-India. I gave a continental touch to the country savoury. This recipe is a perfect evening snack with tea.
Tamarind and jaggery mixed in the batter gives it a sweet and tangy flavour and subtles the bitter tinge of cocoa powder.
- Heat oil in a pan. Add chopped ginger, green chilli and cumin seeds. Saute for a minute.
- Add boiled potatoes, turmeric powder, carom seeds powder and salt. Mix this well and Saute on low flame for 2 minutes.
- Switch off the flame. Transfer this filling into a plate and allow it to cool for sometime.
- Then prepare medium sized balls from this mixture.
- In a deep bowl combine the cocoa powder, besan, baking soda, salt, red chilli powder, grated jaggery and tamarind pulp. Prepare a thick flowing batter by adding water little by little to this mixture.
- Heat oil for deep frying in a kadai.
- Dip each ball in the batter and coat it well from all the sides and deep-fry a few at a time on a medium flame till they turn crispy.
- Serve hot with chutney.
