Mutta Bonda

Mutta Bonda is a favorite tea time snack among South Indians. It is easy and simple to make, if you already have boiled eggs at hand. Few months back we visited my friend Poongodi, where she quickly made some yummy muttai bonda. Our family enjoyed the muttai bonda and we enjoyed the time spent with them! After that day my husband kept saying we must make these egg bondas at home and finally we ended up making it at home and it tasted great! My husband helped me make these bondas and we enjoyed our evening snacks with kids!

  1. Anything fried in besan is just amazing, isn't it? :) The mutta bonda looks like the best thing to have on cold evenings with a cup of chai..
