Mysore bonda

Salt to taste
Finely chopped green chillies and coriander leaves
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp crushed pepper
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp cooking soda
Oil to fry

Mix all the ingredients except oil and cooking soda to get a thick batter. If required add more water as needed.

Heat oil on low flame and when its hot enough to fry, add the cooking soda and mix well. Make small balls of the batter and fry in medium flame till its golden brown all over. It is important to ensure medium flame as the bonda may get brown but stay uncooked if done on high flame.

Serve hot.

A Food Technologist by profession, I started taking a keen interest in cooking after my marriage since my husband is a foodie and I wanted to please him with my culinary skills. My mother is an amazing cook and I think her talent has rubbed on me a little so it was not a very rough start though I still believe there is lot more I need to learn! Piscean  by birth, I am a very imaginative, compassionate and sensitive being. I  love anything and everything that motivates me creatively. At the same time I am also very lazy so was not sure if blogging would work out well for me. But right now I enjoy sharing my creations with my blogger friends and have found a new passion in food styling and photography. More than cooking that is what interests me now and I am very keen on improving these skills.

The idea to start a blog was planted in my head by my husband. I was skeptical since I did not see myself taking photos and writing posts about the dishes I cooked everyday. How wrong was I! At present this is my favourite hobby and I look forward to blogging. I love to cook dishes that are simple, less time consuming yet tasty. That would be my mantra in cooking and this is reflected in my blog. I also believe that you eat with your eyes first; no matter how tasty the dish, if it fails to please your eyes there is very little chance that it will reach your tummy. So styling food and making it presentable is also something that I strive to achieve and I am still progressing gradually on my learning curve; drawing inspiration from what I see around and also from my fellow bloggers. The day I manage to take a stylish and professional food photograph would be the day I would consider my blogging skills truly redeemed. And miles to go before I sleep...
