Aloo Bonda ~ Fried-Batter Covered-Spicy Potato Dumplings

Ingredients

For the filling:
1 russet potato, boiled and mashed
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
3 thai green chillies, chopped
a bunch of cilantro, chopped finely
2 –3 curry leaves, torn into half
2 teaspoons red chilli powder
1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala powder
salt to taste
For the batter
1 cup gram flour ( besan)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

Preparation

1
Mix well the ingredients for the filling and keep aside. Prepare the batter – it should be slightly thinner than pancake batter consistency. Dont make it too thin or else it will not coat the filling well.
2
Heat the oil. Make small lemon sized balls of the filling, dip it in the batter and deep fry in the oil till the outside turns slightly golden brown in colour. Drain on paper towels and serve with cilantro-mint chutney and/or good ol ketchup.
