I am a big fan for evening snacks. We love deep fried snacks pakoda,bajji, bonda, samosa, everything are lipsmackingly good . But I make them very rarely just because of the fact that they are deep fried. I started baking snacks just to meet the cravings . But I am helpless when it rains. The frist smell of rain has to be balanced with some hot and spicy snack. Today it rained so heavy that I had to smoke some oil.
It's been a long while I made aloo bonda. Spicy mixture of potato made into balls,dipped into batter.Then deep fried just wow. Serve them with coconut chutney or some sauce. I love sweet and sour sauce with them.
