How to make Sweet Bonda/ Banana Bonda?


  • Maida– 1 cups
  • Rava/Suji – ½ cup
  • Salt – as per your taste
  • Oil– enough for deep fry.
  • Cardamom – 2 nos
  • Banana – 1 small.
  • Jaggery – as per your sweetness
  • Baking soda – ½ tsp
  • Sugar – 2 tsp

Method :

  1. Sieve the Maida flour, Rava and salt and give a mix.
  2. Melt the jaggery with water (with level that almost sinks the jaggery pieces) in a low flame. Do mix it frequently.
  3. Pour the cooled melted jaggery into the mixture and give it a mix. 
  4.  Powder cardamom and sugar along with banana in a grinder and add it to the dough made. Uniformly spread the banana, cardamom and sugar mixture into the batter and keep mixing them all with water/melted jaggery (as per your sweetness) to adjust the consistency.
  5. The Batter consistency must be thicker than cake batter. Add the baking soda and give it a final mix and rest for 2 hours.

  7. In a dry pan, add oil enough for a deep fry and heat oil in medium flame. Once the oil is almost hot, lower the flame.
  8. Dip your hand in plain water and take a handful of the thick batter and round them in your hands itself and squeeze a part of it into the oil through your thumb and pointing finger.
  9. Slowly cook them in oil in low flame itself as to cook the inner portion.
  10. Remove from the oil once brown
