Aloo Bonda - Sunday Special

Sunday Special ! Saturdays and Sundays are 2 days i love to be lazy.But,today i wanted to make something special for my husband who loves Potatoes.When i told him in the morning that i will make Aloo Bondas for him for brunch he was excited and was impatiently waiting for garam garam Aloo Bondas.
Since we did not have any breakfast, i thought i will also make onion-tomato uthappam and coconut chutney for brunch.
This interesting menu pulled me back to my kitchen(with all laziness gone), i made our special brunch with a lot of ebullience.The outcome was a Superhit !
This sunday was indeed special :-)


1 Big Potato - Boiled and Mashed well
1/2 Tablespoon red chilli powder
1/2 cup of Chopped Onions
Salt (Little since the batter would also contain salt)
2 Green Chillies
1/2 Teaspoon of Turmeric Powder
3-4 Tablespoon of chopped Cilantro(Coriander Leaves)

Oil for Frying
1/2 Tablespoon of Cumin seeds

For the Batter

1 cup of Besan
3 Tablespoon of rice flour
Pinch of Baking Powder(Optional)
1/2 Tablespoon of Red Chilli Powder
Water(to make the batter)

Make the batter and keep it aside.
In a small tawa heat a tablespoon of Oil and add cumin seeds and fry them.
Mix the Mashed potato,Chooped Onions,Red Chilli Powder,Turmeric Powder,Salt,Green Chillies,Cilantro and the fried Cumin seeds together. Make balls(which would look like a medium size lemon) out of this mixture.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan.Once the oil is hot enough to fry ,dip the ball in the batter(take it out once the ball is covered with the batter) and fry them till the bonda turns brown.
Serve them hot with Chutney of your choice and enjoy !
