Crispy Bread Bonda

Even after i finished my portion, my mouth is watering as i am describing this beauty.When you take first bite, you can listen the crunch and feel the softness inside yummilicious...  These goodies take time and lengthy process, but it all worths when your family says its yummy and  table is cleaned after breakfast :) ..he he..
This is one of my favourite breakfast which my mom cooks on special occasions or on sundays. Mom used to stuff many more veggies inside the bonda and we used to call it crispy balls. I am stuffing the simplest, you can add more veggies or have any of your favourite stuffings in the bread.

Bonda's are the famous snack or breakfast recipe from india. Bonda have both sweet and savoury versions. General process of making a bonda is, any stuffing dipped in gram/chickpea flour batter and deep fried in oil. Twist here is that, we use the bread instead of batter which make whole lot of difference to our regulars.

Recently my hubby brought a frying machine and this is the first recipe i tried in that. Such a amazing machine is that. We just need to set the temperature, pour oil in it and rest it will take care. The machine is switched off/on when the temperature is reached, so there is no need to worry about the uneven temperature.  Drop the things to be fried in the mesh and just lift the mesh once its done.

Level: Easy Moderate
Total time: 1 hr
Cooking technique : Deep Frying
Makes: 10-12


Bread Slices : 10-12
Potato: 200 gm
Carrot: 50 gm
Chilli Powder: 2 teaspoons (to taste)
Chat Masala: 1/2 teaspoon
Chopped Coriander: 2 tablespoon
Salt: to taste
Oil - for frying


  • Pressure cook the potatoes to 3 whistles. Once cooled remove the skin and mash them.
  • Clean the carrots and grate them with big hole side.
  • Chop off crusty sides of the bread and set a side.
  • Bread Crumbs: Take the crusty sides of the bread and blend it to form powder and set a side.

Mix all the ingredients except oil and make small ball out of the mixture.
  • Take a wide bowl/plate and fill the water. Dip one side of the bread and squeeze out the water (keep the bread piece in between the palms and press hard).Now dip the other side of the bread piece and squeeze out the water completely.
  • Keep the ball on the center of the bread and fold all sides to form ball and gently press and turn around to make a perfect ball.
  • Roll the ball in the bread crumbs and press gently(crumbs get stick).Keep a side all the balls.
  • Heat the oil on medium heat, drop the balls gently and fry till golden brown on all sides.
  • Serve hot with any chutney/tomato sauce or you can have as it is.

Don't mash the potatoes to fine paste, it should be crumbly structure.

Wanna try....let set go....
