Potato Bondas

Potato Bonda

Indian style potato croquettes or bondas needs no introduction. It is staple in South Indian hotel menu. It is a perfect tea time snack and is also served as appetizers during weddings and festive meals. I made some coconut mint chutney to pair with the bondas.

Hing- a pinch
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp

For the batter
Chick peas flour- 1 1/4 cup
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Baking soda- a pinch

Oil for frying

Mash cooked potatoes.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when it pops add urad dal and channa dal and saute for 30 seconds. Add hing, turmeric powder,onions,ginger and chopped curry leaves and saute for a minute.
 Add mashed potatoes,salt and mix well. Finally add the lemon juice and chopped cilantro. Allow this mixture to cool and then make small equal sided balls (around 12-15).
