Boiled egg fritters, also known as egg pakoras or egg bonda, are a delicious and popular Indian street food snack made with hard-boiled eggs coated in a spiced chickpea flour batter and deep-fried until crispy and golden brown. This dish is bursting with flavor and is perfect as a snack or appetizer. Here’s a detailed description of how to make boiled egg fritters:

1. **Hard-boil the Eggs:** Start by hard-boiling the eggs. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and cool the eggs. Peel the eggs and set aside.

2. **Prepare the Batter:** In a bowl, combine chickpea flour (besan), rice flour, baking soda, salt, turmeric powder, chili powder, garam masala, and a little water to make a thick batter. The batter should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

3. **Coat the Eggs:** Dip each peeled egg into the batter, ensuring it is fully coated. You can also sprinkle a little chaat masala or other spices over the eggs for extra flavor.

4. **Fry the Fritters:** Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the coated eggs to the hot oil. Fry the fritters in batches, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and crispy, about 5-6 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.

5. **Serve:** Serve the boiled egg fritters hot with your favorite dipping sauce or chutney. They are best enjoyed fresh and crispy.

Boiled egg fritters are a delicious and satisfying snack that is sure to please a crowd. The combination of crispy batter and tender boiled eggs is irresistible, making this dish a favorite among both kids and adults.
