Alu Bonda

Posted by Sneha on February 13, 2007

Who doesnt like a warm deep fried snack on a day you get a foot of snow?? As soon as my daughter came back from school, we went sledding and making snow angels and snow balls and after all the fun, we were dying to eat something warm. Thinking back, at my home in Bangalore, on a rainy or cold day, my dad or my sister would always walk to the nearby Vade-Bonda shop, and get them right out of the Tawa for all of us to enjoy! Talk about Nostalgia!!! So, I thought what could fit the bill more perfectly than Alu Bonda? And thats exactly what I did!



For the batter:
Besan(Kadale maavu) – 1 cup
Rice flour -2tbsp
Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Soda – A pinch

Potato – 3 med
Onion – 1 med
Fresh green peas – 1/2 cup
Green chillies 6-8
Ginger – 1/2 inch finely minced
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Oil – 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves – 2tbsp
Oil for deep frying.

For seasoning:
Mustard, Jeera


Boil the potatoes till soft, peel skin, mash coarsely and keep aside.
Heat oil, add seasoning.
Add onions and green peas and saute until soft.
Add salt, turmeric powder.
Remove from heat.
Add the mashed potatoes and coriander leaves and mix well.

Mix the ingredients for the batter to a nice thick dosa flour consistency.
Make small balls of the filling and dip them in the batter and immediately drop them in hot oil.
Deep fry until golden.
Serve plain or with mint chutney or any chutney of choice.
Enjoy your evening snack!
