Notes

  1. If the batter is too thin, it will not coat the filling. We can adjust by adding more gram flour.
  2. If the batter is too thick, outer cover will be so thick and it will dominate than the filling. Adjust by sprinkling water little.
  3. Adding Baking Soda is optional. Baking soda makes the bondages puff up a little but if you add baking soda, we have to finish the batter immediately. Do not keep the batter in refrigerator 
  4. Serve with Coconut Chutney
