    step 5 bonda



  • Here's a tip to grind urad dal : Soak for 2 hours and keep an hour minimum inside fridge for chilling.
  • Use ice water to grind the urad dal. Grind the batter with very less water and do not run the mixer for long time. Give just quick pulses.
  • I used only little more than ¼ cup water. This varies upon the urad dal quality.
  • If your batter is not good for making shapes, keep in the fridge for an hour and then try making.
  • If you want you can add a green chilli and a piece of ginger while grinding. You can also add a tsp of jeera along with pepper.
  • If your urad dal is old and less in quality, you may not get more volume of batter, apparently you will get less numbers of bondas.
