Green moong bondas

This was an off the cuff recipe I tried after salivating over several Mysore Bonda recipes – It was that time of afternoon when the tiffin pangs struck hard and I said, hmmm, how about I make something delicious like that – then I open my pantry and the first thing that I saw was my pachai pasi or green moong split – I had just made a dal out of it which I have yet to blog and I says, why not give this a shot and see how it turns out and the verdict was totally worth it :) So do try this different Bonda recipe and see if you like it.
