Egg bonda/bajji/pakora is a famous south Indian snack recipe. Serve this as a tasty evening snack with hot tea. My family is full of egg lovers and I have learned to cook many egg recipes over the years. This one is a hit recipe in my home. This delicious egg bonda is prepared with hard boiled eggs and besan or gram flour as main ingredients. Moreover, this is a low carb recipe.

Adding eggs often in kids menu is very healthy. Eggs are known to have high vitamin A and protein content. Those who have a problem with the digestion of egg yolk can opt to follow the same recipe only with boiled egg white. But for kids, it is recommended to give both egg white and yolk to get the whole health benefits.

Hard-boiled eggs are the safest choice comparatively when consuming eggs. This egg bonda/bajji batter preparation is same as other bajji preparations. I never use readymade bajji bonda mix, as I feel it is not very difficult to mix it on our own.

  5. Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying. You can heat the oil while mixing the batter. Check the heat by dropping a small drop of batter. If it is raising immediately that is correct heat to fry bondas.
  6. Dip half cut eggs carefully in the batter and drop into hot oil carefully from the corners and fry in medium flame. Fry 3 to 4 bondas in a batch.
  7. Leave them untouched for about 2 mins till the bottom side of the bajjis are cooked and flip them carefully with a steel strainer.
  8. Since the eggs are already boiled, the time for frying is only the time taken for outer layer cooking.
  9. Wait till the golden color comes and the bubbles are settling by this time. Carefully strain the egg bondas/pakoras and keep in a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  10. Serve hot with tea or any kind of chutney/dip or tomato ketchup. Also these delicious egg bondas can be enjoyed without any dip.
