I love this instant bonda recipe which is affectionately called as tea kadai bonda in our side, Tamilnadu region, that is made of besan flour. Some people call it as medhu bonda. I wanted to try this tea shop style bonda recipe for long time. Nowadays my elder daughters ask me to prepare some snacks to munch after coming from school.  Most of the time they’ll have rice or crispy dosa or noodles. Sometimes I’ll get bored to give the same. So, I keep searching and thinking about instant snacks recipes. Here I’m prepared basic onion bonda. You can make it healthy too by adding vegetables. This besan flour bonda is a very easy and instant bonda recipe. Usually, bondas are made with leftover idli, dosa batter or urad dal, maida. But this version is with besan flour/ kadala maavu. Most of you would have seen these bondas in Tea stalls, which is served along with tea in all tea shops. This is an easy to make snack recipe which also goes well as a lunch side dish. Onion Bonda is crisper on the outer part and soft and fluffy on the inner part. Try this tasty evening snack recipe and enjoy. It tastes great only when eaten hot!
