Today’s recipe is a snack that is commonly served when relatives and friends visit us.. Talk about evening tiffin or snack, bajji and bonda always comes in the list.. Much before the baked goodies came in to our kitchen, it was the bajji, bonda and other snacks that were prepared for snacks..

Chopped Coriander - 2 table spoons
Chopped ginger - 1 tea spoon
Chopped green chili – 1 tea spoon

Curry leaves - 1 table spoon
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tea spoon
Oil - 1 tea spoon + to fry
Onion – ½ cup(chopped fine)
