Indian potato recipe, which is a perfect snack with your masala chai is aloo bonda recipe. Boiled potatoes are coarsely mashed and cooked with spices and coated with gram flour batter and deep-fried to make a lip-smacking snack. These are hot and tangy aloo bonda. It has the flavors of fennel seeds, whole coriander seeds, dry pomegranate seeds powder, etc. With few boiled potatoes in the refrigerator, aloo bonda is an instant evening snack.

Just serve it with chutney of your choice or with tea as an easy evening snack.

Gram flour/besan: The fried potatoes are shaped as balls and dipped in a gram flour batter and then deep-fried. The regular gram flour has been used. Further little rice flour has been added which helps make crisp aloo bonda. Along with that pinch of fruit salt is also added.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
