A Silly Story of Bondapalli


There was once a prince who hated food.

One day, the royal cook gave him something new to eat: a hot golden ball, crisp outside, soft inside. He named it a bonda!

Thus begins this prince’s transformation into a bonda lover, egging his subjects and his kingdom to be the same way. Soon, there is no stopping this mad tale that rolls its jolly way to an inevitably happy, bondaful end.

There once lived, in a kingdom far, far away, a prince who was the pickiest of picky eaters. šŸ¤¢

The king and the queen loved to eat.
But not the prince. Every day he fussed:
“Awful! Don’t want it! Take it away!”

So the frustrated queen ordered the palace cook to make something her son would eat.

The poor cook tried out recipes all night, but knew none of them would satisfy the prince. All of a sudden, something amazing happened. He accidentally knocked a spoonful of batter into the hot oil. It sizzled and swelled up into a crispy, golden bonda! šŸŒ•

The prince took one bite and declared it to be bondafulā€”err, wonderful!

For a funny story to captivate your little one, look no further than A Silly Story of Bondapalli. āœØ
