Mangalore Bonda is a popular South Indian snack, originating from the coastal city of Mangalore in Karnataka, India. It is a deep-fried dumpling made from a batter of urad dal (split black gram), rice flour, yogurt, and spices. The batter is shaped into small round balls and then deep-fried until crispy and golden brown. Mangalore Bonda is typically served hot with coconut chutney or sambar (a lentil-based vegetable stew). It has a crispy exterior and a soft, fluffy interior, making it a delicious and satisfying snack. The combination of flavors from the spices and the slight tanginess from the yogurt creates a unique taste that is loved by people of all ages. Mangalore Bonda is often enjoyed as a tea-time snack or as an appetizer at restaurants and street food stalls. It is also commonly made and served during festivals and special occasions. The dish is a popular street food in Mangalore and can be found in various eateries across South India.
