Urad Dal Bonda | Bonda with Egg

One day, while talking to my mom over phone , she told me this recipe. She said that adding egg into urad dal yields lot of bondas. Even if we drop small amount of batter into oil, it fluff up and make big bondas.And also she told that only country eggs are used in this recipe. For 1/4 kg of urad dal , one country egg is enough. You can add more or less as per your wish. 
After heard this recipe, i want to try this for long time. Last week, it had been raining for every evening here and sometimes , i couldnt see anything from my window. In one of those days we craved for something crispy for evening tea,so i tried this with very little amount of dal and the result was awesome. 
Though i grind the batter in mixie, the bond was so fluffy and crispy.I'm glad that i tried this recipe.It's so simple and yields large amount and it doesnt have the egg flavor.

Urad dal Bonda

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 minsServes :
Recipe Category: Snacks | Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Whole Urad Dal(without skin) - 1/4 cup
Country Egg - 1/2 of one beaten egg
Onion - 1/2 of medium size one
Crushed Peppers - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Curry leaves - few
Oil - for frying
Soak the urad dal for 1 hr and grind into smooth paste in a mixie(just like vada batter). Dont add too much add, just add enough to make smooth batter.Beat the egg slightly and add it into urad dal , mix well and then add onions, peppers , salt and curry leaves and mix well.Heat the oil for frying . Now take water in a bowl, dip your hand in water and then take small portion of batter in your hand and drop it in oil.Repeat the same with the remaining batter. Dont over crowd the pan. I add 5 bondas at a time,depends of the pan size, you can add more or less.After one or two mins, it will float on the oil, at that time, flip the bonda on other side to cook. Remove from the oil when both sides are turn golden brown and put it on tissue paper.Tasty & crispy bonda is ready. It tastes good as it is, if you wish you can serve it with any of your favorite chutney.
  • The batter should be thick, dont add too much water for grinding,otherwise, after adding egg, it will become too runny.
  • Dont use normal egg, country egg is best for this recipe.
