ABOUT Aaloo Bondas... RECIPE

A spicy street food from South India in which spiced potato balls are dipped in batter and deep fried. These are very much similar to the Maharashtrian Batata Vadas. It is a lovely tea-time snack that can be served with any chutney of your choice. Although these taste yummy even on their own. These can be packed when travelling too and can be enjoyed with tea.
