Yesterday was indeed a joyful day and special occasions always remind us of bondibai. So for this week’s feature article, we’ve made a little list of our favourite bondibaiy recipes.
We love bondibai in general. But among all the types of bondibai that we have here, our favourite could easily be bambukeyo or breadfruit bondibai.
Although the base ingredient for Handulu Bondibai is the humble rice, it definitely feels special; probably because we are so used to eating it on those special occasions such as Eid, naming of a new born and so on and so forth. It’s also rainy day food because there’s nothing comfier than gobbling down warm Bondibai with some Kulhimas when it’s pouring outside.
Mugu Bondibaiy is such a lovely Maldivian dessert that it’s actually a bit surprising that we don’t really see it being made too much these days. And if you are one of those people who think lentils don’t belong in desserts, we are here to tell you that it really does!
Our spin on the traditional Saagu Bondibai. Making it creamy is both condensed milk and coconut milk and you should definitely give it a go if you haven’t already.
