No Fry Bonda Soup Recipe | No onion no garlic | How to make Bonda Soup | Video Recipes

Bonda is a lentil or a vegetable dumpling that's usually deep fried and eaten as is with chutney or sauce. This is a soup made with a no-fry bonda - a delicious appetiser that's made with everyday pantry essentials . Completely GlutenFree and Vegan, this makes for the perfect dish during parties / potlucks, and the bondas are no fry , which means they can be made ahead of time too!

  1. Nice recipe. Its not always that we like fried. These paniyarams or appes as its called in south India is a nice way to include it as a breakfast dish.
    Nutritious, healthy and tasty!!!

  2. Now this is my kinda food, I always use my paniyaram for all this kind of dishes, love the bonda and the "soup"

  3. Bonda soup using pamiyaram pan is a superb twist as always from your end to make the dish healthy .

  4. Looks so delicious. I love the idlis, vadas or bondas dunked in the sambar. Yummylicious.
