  • Author: Suguna Vinodh
  • Total Time: 20m
  • Yield: 25 bondas 1x


Recipe for easy and quick evening snack made with whole wheat flour, Idli batter, veggies, herbs and spices. The bondas can be made in less than 20 minutes. Recipe with step by step pictures and video.



1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 inch piece ginger, finely minced
2 green chillies, finely minced
1/4 cup coriander leaves, finely chopped
2 tablespoon curry leaves, finely chopped
1 cup idli dosai batter
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon asafoetida
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, cracked
1 cup whole wheat flour / atta
1 tablespoon Idhayam Mantra Groundnut Oil
Idhayam Mantra Groundnut Oil to deep fry


Take a bowl and add in the idli dosai batter.ย  Add about half a cup of water and mix well to combine. Add in the chopped veggies, herbs and spices. Add in the whole wheat flour / atta. I also add a little baking soda while making the batter so the bonda is lite and not dense. The addition of baking soda also helps in getting that deep golden colour on the bondas.

Mix well to combine. Add a tablespoon of groundnut oil to the batter and mix well again.

Heat groundnut oil in a kadai. When the kadai is hot, drop spoonful’s of batter into the oil. Using a wet hand helps in scooping the batter and placing in oil. Be gentle when placing in oil. Fry for a couple of minutes, turning the bondas once in a while so they fry evenly.

Drain the fried bondas on paper towels. Godumai Bondas are ready. Enjoy!
