Urulai Kizhangu Bonda | Potato Bonda | Aloo Bonda

Today recipe is Urulai Kizhangu Bonda/ Potato Bonda. Last weak end , the weather here was  drizzling continuously, couldn't go out for anything and i made this bonda for our evening tea. This taste heavenly with tea for this winter climate. Usually i make this bonda with coconut chutney, i was lazy on that ,so we had it with tomato ketchup. But for me, the coconut chutney is the best combo.So try this for your evening snack and enjoy with your family.
