Of Flavours & Tastes…

Bonda / Urulakkizhangu Bonda / Aloo Bonda !

Bonda was my childhood favourite.We had a small shop at our place where they had hot bondas with spicy potato masala inside.It was divine and my Daddy used to buy me those.Bonda is a nostalgia,to remember and cherish.Here I am presenting you bonda with a spicy potato filling.The masala definitely is very homely which I have spiced up to suit our taste.

Days are moving so fast that we reached fifth day of Blogging Marathon.Do check my fellow Marathoners for  a better experience.Now,on to the recipe..

Ingredients
2 medium sized potatoes,boiled,peeled and mashed roughly
1 medium onion,chopped
1 tsp chopped ginger
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 green chilly,chopped
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
pinch of turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilly powder
1/4 tsp garam masala
2 sprig curry leaves
salt
oil,as needed

For batter
1 cup gram flour/kadala mavu
pinch of turmeric
1 tsp corn flour
salt
3/4 cup water (approx)

Method

Heat oil in a medium skillet and splutter mustard seeds and curry leaves.Throw ginger,garlic and green chilly.Fry for a minute and add chopped onion.Roast till light brown and add all powders reducing heat level.Mix in the mashed potato and mix well till the spices are wrapped over potatoes.Switch off and allow it to cool.

Meanwhile prepare the batter mixing all the ingredients mentioned in the section.Batter should be of medium consistency.

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed skillet and heat oil.The heat should be minimum.Now make balls of your interest and dip it in the batter.

Fry both sides in oil till golden..Serve hot with chutney or sauce.

    BONDA!!! URULAKIZHANGU BONDAA!! Why childhood, it is my all time favorite! Melange, is there anyway I can eat it right off your post? I want a Bonda right now!

    Melange, I have been following your post religiously, fanatically religiously, though I am at a loss for words because my mouth is watering all the time. But Bonda made me spill it out. I like them hot, I like them cold. That bite into the piece of ginger! That piece of chilli!OOOOOOOHHHH!!

    I am saving up your recipes for a rainy day. My friend Anil said he tried your chicken ( I forgot which) and said it was too good.

    But looking at Bonda at this time of night! This is sheer torture!

    MY GOD! These look so yummy! Bondas are my favourite too. There was this shop right in front of our building where they used to make small bondas, but only during Ramadan. It was too delicious.

    I am definitely trying this. 🙂
