Mysore Bonda

Mysore Bonda. Why from Mysore India? Bonda of course is a popularity in India and my plucking Mysore from the Indian air. What is bonda anyway? Bonda is mashed aloo/potato balls cased in crispy batter. Batter made from gram/besan flour and bonda, such a delightful snack. By far too, you must savour in while still hot or once they get out of the frying pan.

Potato filling
2 medium size potatoes (boil and mash)
1/2 cup frozen green peas
2 green chilli (slice thinly)
1 red chilli (sliced thinly)
3 shallots (slice/chop)
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

Potato Filling
In heated oil, fry chillies, shallots, mustard seeds.
Add mashed potatoes, turmeric powder, curry leaves, peas and salt.
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 medium consistency batter.
Dip balls individually in batter.
Fry/deep fry till golden brown.
Remove and drain over kitchen towel.
