Aloo Bonda (Potato Dumpling)

First of all i have to thank my neighbour Ms. Bhavani Tata who introduced me to a Bengali snack "Aloo chop". A very tasty snack. It had a similar taste of Aloo Bonda. She has promised me to give me the recipe. (Once i get it, i will share it with you all.) When i was enjoying Aloo Chop, i thought of making Aloo Bonda. And that's how i ended up making this snack. It is a perfect snack with tea or coffee.

Aloo bonda is also known as Batata Vada in Mumbai. Aloo bonda is a typical South Indian snack. It is a deep fried savoury snack stuffed with potato and spices mixture. Aloo bonda is crispy outside and soft inside.
