Eggs and Spinach are a wonderful combination and we love it. I usually make Scrambled Eggs with Spinach. I thought of making something different using this combo, so came up with an idea of trying bondas. I had made Paneer Spinach bonda inspired from Vardhinis recipe which I had posted few days back. I prepared Egg Spinach bondas a little similar to those. For this I used the eggs by hard boiling them and grating. I don't like deep frying, so here also I used the paniyaram pan which consumes very less oil and hot healthy snack was ready in minutes. The bondas were delicious and was perfect with hot cup of coffee for the cold climate here. My hubby loved them and appreciated my idea of making these bondas.
What you need?
3/4 cup chopped Spinach
1/4 cup chopped Onion
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/2 cup Gram flour
1/4 cup Rice flour
1/2 tsp Chilli powder
How to prepare?
Hard boil the eggs and remove the shell. Grate the eggs.
Add spinach, onion, spices and salt to the grated eggs. Combine well. Make small balls out of it.
Mix all the ingredients under For batter along with some water to get a medium consistency batter.
Heat the paniyaram pan. Add 2-3 drops of oil in each hole. Dip each ball into the batter and place in each hole. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes. Once the bottom part gets browned, flip it carefully. Let it brown on other side and then remove them.
Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
Makes about 12-14 bondas.
*You can deep fry the bondas if you wish.
*You can also add chaat masala, amchur powder, green chillies to the filling.
