Mysore Bonda - fluffy Ulundu Bonda - Minapa Punugulu

Mysore Bonda is a Popular Snack Recipe from cuisine of Mysore. These Bonda's are deep fried dumplings made with urad flour & some Spices. These  fluffy bonda's have soft, smooth texture. Adding fresh  Coconut bites & whole Pepper corns gives nice aroma to bonda. These bonda's tastes most similar to medu vada, mostly the shape varies. My husband is a big fan of medu vada, but shaping the vada's are little bit difficult, than shaping these Bonda's.So Now a days, if he is asking for Medu vada, I am making this Bonda.He became the fan of this Bonda.
