It is a very easy to prepare side dish cum snack. Required number of eggs depends upon how many bondas you need.


  • Eggs: As required
  • Bengal gram flour (Besan / Kadalai mavu)
  • Chili powder
  • Salt
  • Edible oil for deep frying
Method of Preparation:

  • Hard boil the eggs, remove the shell from each egg and cut each egg into two.
  • Make a batter with gram flour, chili powder, salt and water.
  • Heat edible oil in a sauce pot / wok (kadhai / kadai / Iruppuchchatti.
  • Dip the egg in the batter and deep fry in oil till golden brown.
  • Serve hot with or without chutney / thuvaiyal / pickle / podi / thokku.
Any edible flour can be made into a batter, into which a variety of bondas, bajjis, pakodas / pakoras, tempuras, hush puppies, bhajias, kakiage, beignets, fritters etc. can be deep fried. This may be experimented in the leisure time using small quantity. Different flours will make different bondas with different flavours (flavors) and textures.
