Bonda (Fried Savoury Potato Balls)


Bonda??? Okay - Indian savoury snack/finger food. First made the potato filling with the ingredients listed below. Once cool down, roll, dip in the besan flour mixture and fry. Surely must be eaten as soon as fried. I think its nice by itself. But of course, you like to pair with a dip, go ahead. Mint dip is definitely suggested.

Ingredients:
Potato filling
2 medium size potatoes (boiled and mashed)
1/2 cup frozen green peas
2 green chilli (sliced thinly)
1 red chilli (sliced thinly)
3 shallots (sliced/chopped)
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp kunyit/turmeric powder
2 sprigs curry leaves
2 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Batter/flour mixture
3 tbsp gram flour
1 tbsp oil
Water - as needed
Salt for taste
Oil for frying

Method
Potato Filling
In heated oil, fry chillies, shallots, mustard seeds.
Add mashed potatoes, turmeric powder, curry leaves, peas and salt to taste.
Stir till all sticks together. 
Remove from heat and let it cool down.
Roll filling; bit by bit into individual balls.
For batter/flour coating
Add flour, salt and oil.
Mix while pouring enough water for a thin batter.
Dip balls in batter.
Fry/deep fry till golden brown.
Remove and drain over kitchen towel.
