Urulai Kizhangu Bonda/No Deep Fried Potato Bonda

Chilled weather means deep fried snacks for us. Paris weather is playing around between chilled weather, sudden rain and mild sunny days obviously everyone at home needs some hot,crispy evening snacks to keep them comfort. I prepared this potato bondas few days back with kuzhi paniyaram pan or aebleskiver pan which hardly need a half teaspoon of oil to get ready. This no deep fried potato bonda is definitely a guilt free snacks to enjoy simply with a cup of coffee or tea,trust me they will get vanished quickly one you remove them from the paniyaram pan.

Since this bonda is not deep fried,you can have two more bondas without any hesitation, if you dont like this method, sure you can prepare them by deepfrying. Enjoy this fantastic no deep fried bondas for your evening snacks.Today is the 2nd tuesday of the month, i belong to a group of friends  who shares authentic dishes from Tamilnadu and the name of the event is Tamizhar Samayal Tuesday, please do check the announcement if you want to be a part of it.
