Rava Bonda

Source: Kuty's Kreations

What does one do when they have leftover idli batter and leftover oil from frying pooris?  Why they make bondas of course!  Thank you Gits!

  • 1 packet Gits Rava Idli Mix
  • 550ml thick yogurt
  • 200ml water
  • 1 handful chopped coriander
  • 2-3 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • Oil for frying
  1. Mix Gits Rava Idli contents with yogurt and water.  (My yogurt was really thick so I added water. If your yogurt is already watery you may not need to add water.)
  2. Add coriander, green chilies, carrots, and red onions (you can put any vegetable you want)
  3. Stir to form a smooth batter and let it sit for 10 mins.  (Since I used this mix to make idlis the previous day, I placed the leftover batter in the frig for a day before I used it to make bondas.  I'm not sure if makes a difference or not, but the batter should be quite thick.)
  4. Heat oil and place small golf ball size portions of the batter into the oil.
  5. Fry until brown to get crispy bondas.  Fry until golden brown to get softer ones.
Kuty's Twist

So this is a great way to use up your leftover idli batter.  If you make all of the batter from a Gits mix into bondas, you are going to have a LOT of bondas!  After making ~16 idlis and 20 bondas, I still have leftover batter from this mix.  I think I may water it down and try to make dosas next... stay tuned!
