Aloo Bhonda

Aloo Bonda

Aloogadde bonda is an all time favorite in my house (ehm as it is an all time favorite I am not a big fan!!).. Anyway this gets done atleast once in 2 weeks.

This is quite an easy dish to make and you need

You need

For the batter:
Gram flour - 1 cup
Rice Flour - 1 cup
Red chillie powder - for taste
Coriander powder - 1 tsp

For the Stuffing:
Potatoes –  3 large (pressure-cooked till soft)
Green Chillies – 3 (finely chopped)
Coriander/Cilantro – a fistful; finely chopped
Lime juice – from 1 lime
Salt – to taste
Asafoetida – a pinch

Mash the pressure-cooked potatoes and add all the other ingredients for the stuffing and mix well.
Make small lemon sized balls and keep aside

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a considerably wide and shallow bowl.
Add water little by little to make a thick batter (like idli batter consistency).
Now, get the oil hot for deep-frying your bondas. Pour enough oil in a pan and let it heat up on a medium-high flame.

Dunk the Aloo balls in the batter one by one batter covers the balls uniformly.
Fry the aloo bondas in oil till they turn evenly golden brown all over.
Remove from oil and put them on tissues to drain off any excess oil. Repeat with all your aloo balls.
Transfer to a plate, serve hot with tomato ketchup.
