Mysore bondas are fried dumplings made with flour, yogurt and spices. They are crispy outside and fluffy inside. They make a delightful treat for any party or snack for tea time. Serve them with coconut chutney.
- 1 cup all purpose flour maida, plain flour
- 1/4 cup rice flour
- 1 tsp salt 1
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds jeera
- 1/2 cup yogurt, dahai sour curd works best
- 3/3 cup water
- 1 tsp finely chopped ginger
- 1 tbsp finely chopped green chilies
- 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro hara dhania
Oil to fry
- To make batter, mix all the dry ingredients together, all-purpose flour, rice flour, salt, baking soda, and cumin seeds. Add yogurt mix it well add the water to make thick batter. Add remaining ingredients ginger, green chili, and cilantro. Set aside for about 15-20 minutes. Batter will be light and fluffy.
- Heat the oil on medium heat. The frying pan should have about 1 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, put little batter in oil. The batter should sizzle and come up but not change color right away. If oil is very hot bondas will not cook through and will not be crispy.
- Place about 2 tablespoon of batter into the oil with your fingers. Fry bondas in small batches. Fry them until golden-brown all around. This should take about 3-4 minutes.
- Mysore bond a should be crispy from outside and should be soft inside.
Serve them with coconut Chutney. You will also enjoy Rava Idli another quick South Indian dish.

Ma’am!How to make mysore bonda soft?!
Dear Manjula Aunty,
I am also from south canara. Whatever they call it in south canara or entire karnataka. This recipe is awesome!!! thumps up.
Yeah you are right
plz reply recepy
The name is actually Mangalore bonda or also known as Goli Baji. It is a very popular and common snack of the people of South Kanara ( i.e. Mangalore, Udupi region etc.)
Kavitha Murthy, Thank you always learning
Yes, it is known as Mangalore bajji or goli bajji in Karnataka (check in hotels or darshinis in Bangalore). Mysore bonda may be different.
I have just tried out the Mysore Bonds recipe. Although it came out crispy outside & fluffy inside, it was very oily.
try to add some rava in it so that oil may observe less. this happens because we added baking soda
Baking soda always absorbed oil any other substitutes or can we do without soda/baking powder . I think using sparkling ice cold water may be good
I always wonder what is mysore bonda. Thank you for posting it.
They are original xx
Thank you for all the interesting videos to make cooking a simple affair!
However the video about mysore bonda though correct , actually is called as mangalore bonda. Mysore bonda s made with urad dal soaked for 3 hrs in water then ground into paste.
You are right. These are Mangalore bajji or goli bajji.
Hello Manjula.. I watch your recipes all the time I think you’re wonderful. But in this recipe what is sour yogurt ?
Have a blessed week hugs and love.
Sour yogurt is just plain yogurt that has been left out of the fridge for a few hours-(ie not freshly made). Most indian households make yogurt at home and fresh yogurt is mild and not sour. Store bought yogurt is usually already a bit sour so you don’t need to give it the extra ‘sit-out’ time.
Recipe sounds delicious. Can I substitute with a gluten free flour such as besam?
Robin, taste will be different but should be good.
What is Indian name of cilantro
Avni, hara dhania
