Continuing with the besan theme, once you’ve made the batter for the bonda you need to make:
The stuffing for bondas:
Bondas can be made with only mashed potatoes or mixed vegetables. Mashed tapioca can also be used. For mixed vegetable:
Capsicum 1 small piece
Peas 1 tsp
Chopped Green chillies 1 tsp
Chopped Ginger tsp.
Mustard ½ tsp
Turmeric powder ½ tsp
Lemon juice 1 tsp(optional)
Any or all of the above vegetables may be used. Cook the vegetables and mash them thoroughly. Heat 1 tsp oil, add mustard seed. When they splutter, add the green chillies, ginger and mashed vegetables, salt and turmeric powder. Mix well. Remove from stove. Add coriander leaves and lemon juice(this gives an extra tingling taste) Make small balls of the mixture, dip in the besan paste and deep fry.
If using only potatoes, mash boiled potatoes and follow the same method.
