Bonda Soup

One of my favorite dish when I visit few of the Sagar hotels in Blr. For someone who has not tired this before, the name and imagination of the dish would not go together. Here is the recipe for this :

For Bonda
  • Urad dhal : 1 cup
  • Coconut : 2 tbl spns (finely chopped or grated)
  • Salt and Oil (for frying)

Soak Urad dhal for about an hour and grind it fine without adding water (add little water only if required). Add salt and coconut into the batter and mix.
Heat Oil and drop lime size rounds of batter into it. Fry till golden brown in low flame.
Once done put this on a kitchen tissue paper.

For Soup

  • Toor dhal : qtr cup
  • Moong dhal : qtr cup
  • Ginger: 1/2 tea spn (finely chopped)
  • Coconut : 1 tbl spn (grated)
  • Green chillies 3 to 4
  • Turmeric : qtr tea spn
  • Cumin pwdr : qtr tea spn
  • Coriander leaves 2-3 strands
  • Salt and water
Cook both the dhal together with turmeric and mash it once its cooked. Now add rest of the ingredients (Ginger, coconut, chopped chillies, Cumin pwdr, Salt and Coriander leaves) and water to get this to a watery consistency. Once it comes to boil remove from flame.
Take the hot soup in a bowl and add the bondas and serve it immediately.

Kamala, this would not taste like Sambar Vadai... The soup is a great compliment with bonda.

Roopa I have seen this only in the bangalore restaurants, the bonda is more or less like Urad vada.

this is really interesting. is it the same as paruppa urundai kozhambu. maybe not - because those urundais arent fried.

Arundati its not paruppu urandai. Can say Udduvada in moong dhal rasam.
