Jalapeno Bonda

For Week 2 Day 2 of BM #76, I have here some sizzling hot and spicy Jalapeno Bondas for the picnic hamper. My husband says what is a picnic without some spicy deep fried goodies to share with friends. So that gave me an idea of these jalapeno bondas.

I remember a time when we went for camping and it started raining heavily. We had set up our portable gas stoves on one of those picnic tables on camp grounds. So armed with a huge picnic umbrella which could accommodate only 4, we in groups of 4, one holding the umbrella, one mixing the batter, one frying mirchi bajjis and serving to all 14 of our troupe. Oh! What bliss!! I wish for more such days !  I can imagine frying these on such a rainy day!!

These pickled jalapenos are not too spicy, have a tang to them and sound perfect for these bondas. I am sure these can be made with fresh jalapenos as well for an extra spicy ones.

Ingredients - 

All purpose Flour/ Maida 1/2 cup
Rice Flour 2 Tbsp
Semolina/Sooji/Bombay Rava 2 Tbsp
Yogurt 1/2 cup (Add water if needed)
Salt, Cumin Seeds, Asafotida as needed
Ginger grated 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves, Curry leaves chopped finely
Baking Soda a small pinch
Pickled Jalapeno slices  about 1/4 cup (packed) or as needed

Jalapeno Bonda

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl add maida, rice flour, sooji, salt, cumin seeds, asafotida, grated ginger, finely chopped coriander leaves and curry leaves.

Add in the beaten yogurt adding as much water as needed to make a thick bajji batter. Cover and set aside for 10-15 minutes.

Wash the pickled jalapeno slices and drain them on paper towels.

Adjust the consistency of the batter by adding more water.

Dip each slice in the batter and deep fry in oil.

Serve hot with a chutney of your choice.
