Aloo Bonda/ Batata Vada

Aloo Bonda is one of the popular snack / appetizer. It is also known as batata vada in Mumbai and it’s a famous street food.

It is a deep fried savory snack stuffed with potato spices mixture.  There are a lot of variations in making this potato stuffing. Aloo bonda is soft inside and crispy outside.  These are simple to make and delicious to eat.

Potatoes are my favorite vegetable and are very rich in carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.

These can be served with sweet chutney or tomato ketup.

Potato – 3 no medium
Onion – 1no small
Green chillies chopped – 2 no
