Well i have no idea about this dish,where it comes from and whom prepared it first.But i am sure about the taste,which never let you down.This was very popular food among during my  college time,i remebered a person would come with  bonda and home made chili chutney in a push cart.It was finished just in a snap.I know it was a happy memory for me.I bring my memories back  by preparing such a very quick and funcky street food which i like the most.

These funcky bites are taste the best when paired with green chilli and some onions..


You just need to slightly scraped parwals and trim both the ends.Use a spoon and scope out all the pulps.


The prepared  stuffing is the main step for this dish,which should be dried not thick/thin.Its better to first prepare stuffing then you start work on parwals will save your time.


Now stuff generous amount of masala into the parawal using your hand.


The batter should be thick.So that the parwal coated with the batter nicely.If it’ll thin,then it won’t be coated properly.


Use enough oil in a wok and drop carefully each stuffed parwals,fry them on medium flame until crunchy and light brown.
