Potato/urulaikizhangu-Tamil,Aloo-Hindi is one vegetable or tuber should I say that is loved alike by most across the globe.Store a batch of potatoes in your veggie basket and you will never run short of good food/ideas :),seriously I may sound exaggerated but I am not.Every nation,every region and every home has its own favorite recipe with potato and I bet all of those tastes good,for a person like me who would live on potatoes.Being a tuber,it may cause gastric problems to few that is also only when it is fried,when boiled with some salt potatoes do not tend to cause gastric problems,once I heard this from a doctor.Potato is an excellent source of nutrition for growing children and we feed growing toddlers with one boiled mashed potato daily. With all these nutritional benefits discussed we should not get too serious and forget the taste of potatoes right,now tell me who does not love potato :) Today I am presenting a very famous snack with potato that is loved across India with different names and slight variation is making.The one I am blogging today is the very popular bonda-a deep fried dumpling ,where potato and gram flour are the star ingredients.This is a traditional dish which is mostly served during Tambaram marriages, without onions of course and tastes great with coconut chutney.Very easy to make, quick recipe that tastes good with coffee,here you go :)
