Red and Green Capsicum Fritters or Bonda

You asked and here it is, recipe for red and green capsicum bonda. It is cruncy, spicy and fried. What better can you ask, right?



  • 1 cup gram flour or besan
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • A pinch of asafoetida or hing
  • A pinch of baking soda (optional, I never use it)
  • A pinch of Turmeric or haldi powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Red and green capsicum sliced lengthwise


  • Chop the capsicum lengthwise.
  • Put the gram four in a bowl.
  • Mix the red chilli powder, turmeric, hing, and salt.
  • If you are using baking soda, mix it as well.
  • Slowly add water, mixing simultaneously with a spoon until you get a smooth batter of medium thickness.
  • It should be able to stick to the capsicum.
  • Put oil in a pan and set over medium heat. When the oil is medium hot, dip the capsicum in the batter and drop them in the oil, one by one.
  • Fry both sides until the fritters turn crisp and golden.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove fritters and drain the excess oil on kitchen paper. Server hot.
