Moongdal Paneer Bonda

Dunno how you will love your evening snacks when the weather very down, but my choice will definitely go for some deep fried beauties with a cup of masala tea. If i get them for my rainy or chilled evening snacks, definitely am the happiest person in the world. Few days back, i prepared quickly this moongdal paneer bonda for our evening snacks when it was raining outside with some cooked whole greengrams and some leftover grated paneer. Just a quick stir fry with cooked moongdal and paneer makes an interesting stuffing for your bondas. If you are bored of the usual potato bonda, you have to give a try to this protein rich stuffing.

Also kids can have easily this deep fried beauties without any hesitation coz both moongdal and paneer works wonder together in the stuffing and they wont even notice them. You doesnt even need any sauces or chutneys to enjoy with this bondas, make some and feed your kids with this protein rich dal and paneer.Add more veggies or spices according to your taste if you want to make these simple bondas more interesting.
