I never thought making a onion bonda or vada would be this easy. Its just like a readymade food and involves no process of draining the rice for hours nor a lengthy process as well. It goes well with coconut chutney and best for a Tea Time . It’s the most important and often seen cuisine in most of the Indian Tea shops.

  • Gram Flour/Kadala Maavu- 100 Grams
  • Rice Flour- 2 Tspn
  • Rava- Half Tspn(Optional)
  • Onion- 1 Large(Cut to lengthy pieces)
  • Green Chillies- 2 Nos
  • Curry Leaves- 10 Nos(Optional)
  • Coriander leaves- 10 Nos
  • Asafetida- Half Tspn
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- To Fry

Mix all the ingredients by adding water and mix well.

Deep fry it in hot oil by flipping it both the sides and transfer it to a paper towel and set dry.

"Adding curry leaves is optional.

Adding rava is also optional but it turns the vada to crispy.

You can add a little of baking powder if you want even more crispy."



  1. how to make vada with 3 and 2 Tspn flour? Pls clarify the amount of flour and how many vada expected

    1. Hi Dhana,
      Thanks for your visit!
      It should be 100 grams of gram flour.It was a typo*,thanks for letting me know.Rice flour remains as 2 tspn as its just to add crispness only. You could make 10-12 bonda/vada with the said measurement.
