Aloo Bonda

Recipe: From Charu.

Makes: 19 Bondas.


  • Pakora / Pakora Batter (bit thicker than that)
  • Potatoes --- 4 big
  • Green Chilies --- 5-6 small
  • Onions --- ½ of the big one
  • Salt --- as per taste
  • Turmeric Powder --- a pinch
  • Coriander Leaves --- 10-15 strands
  • Lime --- ½ of the big one
For Seasoning:

  • Oil --- 2 tblsn
  • Mustard Seeds --- 1 tsp

  • Peel and chop potatoes into cubes and cook them in salted water for 3 whistles by adding a pinch of turmeric powder. Wait till the pressure goes away. Drain the water by using colander.

  • Add finely chopped green chilies and fry for a while.
  • Now add chopped onions. Fry till the onions turn to translucent.
  • Add potatoes and mash them with a ladle. Adjust salt.
  • Just before turning off the flame add lime juice and chopped coriander leaves.
  • Let it cool.
  • Make small round balls with the potato filling.
  • Heat oil in a steel pan for deep frying the bondas.
  • When the oil is at right hot, dip the potato balls in the pakora batter and drop them gently into the hot oil.
  • Fry them till they are golden brown. Remove them and keep them on a paper towel to remove the excess oil. Even though they are deep fried they take very less oil.

  • Have / Serve them when they're hot.
