what is soda salt? is it eno salt/fruit salt

Nice. There is another bonda called 'goli baje' or Mangalore bonda which is very popular snack in Udupi/Mangalore area. There is a very slight change in the ingredients for that and rest everything is same.
There is no rice flour, jeera in that recipe. We add curry leaves and a tiny amount of sugar to the flour and make the bonda. It is slightly chewy / soft in nature and needs to be consumed when it is hot.

Even i thought it is called mangalore bonda first, i tasted it in the mangalore once and it has the same ingredients. yesterday i tried this and it came out well. Thanks madam.

i tried out this recipe, but the bondas were very hard, i think it should rest for atleast two hours, 30 min not enough. what is the consistency of the bonda batter ?

The batter should be nicely aerated. We should nicely mix the batter atleast for 5 minutes and then the air would get incorporated and it would help to get soft bondas

without baking soda can we do this..

Hi Meenal, We are adding the baking soda to get a fluffy vada inside. Otherwise, it become hard. Add little baking soda for a soft vada. Alternatively you can also add Eno salt, which is available in the market.

This is a very nice post. Mysore Bonda is a very delicious recipe. Thank you for sharing the ingredients and recipe. It is yummy. Hope your next recipe will published soon.

can we make this bonda in kuzhi paniyaram pan?

You can try making, but i guess deep frying makes it nice and fluffy
