Idli Batter Bonda

Posted on



With the onset of monsoons here in Brunei..the evenings are always very rainy.This automatically calls for something fried to accompany with the hot tea..It was on such a rainy evening,I decided to prepare a fried snack for my family,who are very fond of deep fried snacks 🙂 ..and I remembered the leftover Idli Batter in the fridge and I made these lovely bondas.They were sooo yummy and crispy..perfect with a cup of tea.So here I am sharing this simple recipe with you friends..Enjoy the monsoons with a hot Idli Batter Bonda!


  • Idli Batter – 2 cups.
  • All purpose Flour – 1/4 cup.
  • Rice Flour – 2tbsp.
  • Green Chillies – 2(Finely Chopped)
  • Coriander leaves – a handful(Finely Chopped)
  • Onion – 1 big(Finely chopped).
  • Salt
  • Curry leaves – a few
  • Oil For frying


  1. Combine all the above ingredients except Oil  until there are no lumps.The resulting batter should be a little more thicker than Idli Batter.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and spoon in or drop spoon fulls of batter in a round headed spoon into the hot oil.Fry on both sides,turning until golden brown.
  3. Remove from oil,drain off the excess oil on a kitchen tissue and serve hot with chutney and Enjoy!!
