Eager to make bonda but in no mood to soak the stuff, grind the batter, and all? Go for this yummy Rava Bonda, which has a fabulously crispy texture and a peppy flavour, all achieved without any complex or time-consuming procedures.

The rava is soaked in curds, perked up with ingredients like onions, cashew nuts and curry leaves, and deep-fried till perfectly golden and crisp.

The curd not only helps to bind the rava together but also gives the batter a kind of fermented flavour and texture with a mild tanginess. Curd contributes to the crispness, colour and flavour, making these bondas perfectly delightful.

Serve it hot with coconut chutney or green chutney, and a cup of hot coffee . You can also try other traditional bonda recipes like Mysore Bonda or Urad Dal Bonda .

Great snack for kids when they come hungry. Use of just a few ingredients but rava mixture needs to be set aside. So plan accordingly. I enjoyed it with green chutney more than the coconut chutney.
