It’s been drizzling since morning and so it’s the perfect weather to indulge in some fried snacks with hot tea. So I decided to make aloo bonda for evening tea. It’s an easy and quick recipe which is very delicious too.

Aloo bonda or potato bonda is a very famous evening snack, popular in Mumbai and South India. Aloo bonda is basically round ball of mashed and spiced potatoes dipped in besan (gram flour) batter and deep fried. It is very crisp, spicy and yummy and to eat. Serve the aloo bonda with mint or tamarind chutney and a cup of filter coffee or tea as a tea time snack.Now let’s have a look at how to make aloo bonda.

How to make aloo bonda:

  1. Boil the potatoes. Peel and mash them properly.
  2. Now add finely chopped onions, salt, chili powder, garam masala, coriander leaves, and green chilies to the mashed potatoes. Mix well so that the spices are evenly mixed in the potatoes.
  3. In a small bowl, take a cup of besan (gram flour). Add turmeric powder, little salt and chili powder to the besan. Add little water bit by bit to the besan and mix with hand to make a smooth, consistent batter which is neither too thick nor too watery. Take care that lumps are not formed.
  4. Make small round balls of potato mixture.
  5. Heat cooking oil in a deep frying pan or kadai.
  6. Dip each potato ball in the batter and deep fry them till it’s golden. Brown from all sides.
