How to make javvarisi bonda with step by step images
- In a bowl add idli/ dosa batter and javvarisi/ sabudhana. Mix well and keep it aside for 2 hours. This rest time will help jannarisi/ sabudhana to soak and double in size.
- After 2 hours heat oil in a frying pan. To the javvarisi/ sabudhana batter add chopped onion, green chilli and curry leaves. Mix well.
- Take small portions of batter in hand and drop it gently in oil one by one and fry them in medium flame. When one side turns golden brown flip it gently. When both sides look golden brown remove the bonda with slotted spoon and transfer it to a plate with paper towel and serve it hot!
- You can use freshly made fermented batter or leftover batter to make this bonda.
- If your batter is too thick then add little water to make it into flowing consistency, if your batter is too much thin try adding some rice flour.
- Soaking javvarisi/ sabudana for 2 hours is must, otherwise the bonda will have sabudana/sago that is hard enough making it tough to eat.
- Heat oil really when and then make bonda, if the oil is less heated the bondas will intake lot if oil making the bondas soggy and oily.
