Aloo Bonda (Urad Dal)

Usually aloo bonda is made with besan (gram dal flour), in this recipe besan is replaced by urad dal flour.

During weekends and holidays my little one and my hubby demand an evening snack. I always have a lot of questions on what to make, whether its healthy  and what is available in the pantry. This past weekend these questions and I came up with this Aloo Bonda recipe.

Aloo Bonda is popular snack in South India made with potatoes as filling inside besan flour. Its deep fried which makes it yummy. I had some Urad dal batter left over from the previous day and I used this instead of besan and made allo bonda.
