An awesome snack from the ever-busy kitchens of Mysore, the Mysore Bonda is a deep-fried fritter made of plain flour, rice flour and curds, perked up with a range of appropriate taste givers like ginger and green chillies.

This traditional snack, a specialty of Karnataka, has a beautifully reddish-golden hue, a crisp outer surface and a super-soft inner core, somewhat like bread.

It tastes wonderful whens served hot with chutney, and a cup of hot milky filter coffee!
