Bonda Soup

This is one of my husband's favourite recipe. We usually stop at this restaurant in Sakleshpur on our way to Kateel and he always orders this. So on this fine day I decided to try my hand in making this recipe..

You need

For the Bhonda
Udad Dal (split black gram dal) - 2 cup
Green chilies - 3 - 4 finely chopped (as per taste)
Fresh Coconut pieces - 2 tbsp
Coriander leave - finely chopped - 2 tbsp
ginger - 1/2 inch piece finely chopped
Pepper - 8 coarsly ground
Hing - 1 tsp
Salt - As per taste
Oil - For deep frying

Method :
Wash and soak the udad dal for about 2 hours.
Drain the water. Grind it into a very fine paste without adding any water.
Add 1 or 2 tbsp to ensure the mixie runs fine.
Remove the Batter to a bowl.
To this add the green chilies, coriander leaves, pieces of fresh coconut, hing, ground pepper, ginger and salt. Mix well and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan till it is hot and then lower the flame to medium.
Take a small lemon quantity of the batter and drop it gently in the hot oil.
Depending on the size of the pan drop about 7 - 10 bondas in the hot oil.
Fry them till they are golden brown in colour.
Remove them onto a tissue paper to drain the excess oil
Make bondas with the remaining batter

Moong Dal - 3/4 cup
Green chilies - 2 slit into half
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece finely chopped
Tomatoes - 2 medium finely chopped
Onion - 1 medium finely chopped

Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp (chopped)

For the oggarane - 2 tsp oil, 1 tsp jeera, 3 dry chillies,

Wash and cook the Moong dal in the pressure cooker for 4 - 5 whistles.
Remove the cooked dal from the cooker into a pan and mash well.
Add about 2-3 cups of water, slit green chillies, chopped tomatoes, chopped onion, chopped ginger, hing and salt and bring it to a boil.
Lower the flame and let it simmer for a few minutes.
Prepare the seasoning in a small pan - heat oil add jeera and dry red chilies. When Jeera starts changing colour remove from flame and pour it on the cooked dal.
Remove the dal from flame
Add lime juice and mix well.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

To serve: Take the prepared hot soup in a bowl and add the bondas. Serve hot!

This is off to Jagruti's potluck party.
