This recipe was my experiment. One day i made chickpea cutlet , it came out well. My husband said the another day I want something fried for snacks. I make masala vadai usually. Since boiled chickpea was in the fridge I thought i will make like vadai recipe. I put the vadai's for deep frying , after some time nothing was there in the oil, everything disappeared. :-( . Then I thought for a while, and vadais became Bonda. Now my recipe.

For the batter

Besan – ½ cup
Rice powder – 1 tbsp
Chili powder – ½ tsp
Salt as per taste

For the filling
Boiled chickpeas – 1 cup
Onion – 1
Grated carrot – ½ cup
Chili powder – ¼ tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying


1. Combine besan, rice powder,chili powder , salt and add water and make a batter.
2. Combine all the ingredients given for the filling and mix well.
3. Make small balls and dip in the batter and deep fry it.
