Aloo Bonda Recipe/ Crispy South Indian Aloo Bonda

Aloo Bonda is a popular tea time snack or a street food in South India. This is quite similar to famous Maharashtrian Street food batata Vada. Infact sometimes back, I didn’t know the difference between both until one of my blogger friend mentioned the difference of both in her blog. The difference lies in the spices used.

Here in aloo bonda, a tempering of potato is done with mustard seeds, cumin seeds and urad dal along with other spices to make potato filling. I added crushed peanuts as well to give a crunch to the filling. Rice flour along with besan is added to the batter to make crispier aloo bonda.

Here is my version of aloo bonda. Do give it a try and if you like it, do give a comment.
