Ethapazham Bonda/Sweet Bonda


Ethapazham Bonda/Sweet Bonda

This is a yummy tea time snack which has sweet filling of ripe plantain, coconut and rava/semolina. It is quick and simple one and will be loved by by both young and old.Try using only ripe and sweet plantain for this recipe. The coating used is the same as the one used for pazham pori.

Ingredients
Ripe Plantain - 2
Coconut grated- 3/4 cup
Rava- 1/3 cup
Sugar- 3-4 tbs
Cardamon -5
Cashew nuts-6-7
Raisins-  a few
Nutmeg powder- a pinch (optional)
Ghee- 2 tsp

For the batter

Maida/All purpose flour- 3/4 cup
Rice flour-3 tbs
Sugar-1 tsp
salt- a pinch
baking powder- a pinch

oil for frying

Grate  plantain or mash it with your hands. Heat ghee in a pan and roast cashewnuts and raisins, drain and keep aside. In the same pan roast rava and coconut till it is golden brown. Add the grated plantain and saute for about two minutes. Allow this mixture to cool. Add sugar,cardamon, nutmeg and the roasted cashew nuts and raisins and mix well. Make this into small balls and keep aside.

Mix all the ingredients listed under batter. Add enough water to make a smooth batter not so thick and not so thin( idli batter consistency).
Heat oil in a pan and when it hot enough take balls one at a time and dip into the batter and carefully drop into oil. Fry till all sides are evenly browned up. Drain in paper towel. Serve as a tea time snack.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy
