Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups potato, boiled and mashed
  • 1/2 cup carrots, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup French beans, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red, yellow, or green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cabbage, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon maida, use only if you need it for binding the vegetables
  • 1 1 /2 cups chickpea flour, for batter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red chili powder, 1 tsp for vegetable mix, 1/2 tsp for batter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon carom seeds
  • salt to taste
  • oil for deep-frying

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine chickpea flour, red chili powder, carom seeds, and half of the salt. Mix well. While adding a glass of water, make a smooth and thick consistency batter.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, add the cooked vegetables and the mashed potatoes. Add the red chili powder, garam masala powder, and the other half of the salt. You should be able to form medium-firm balls with this mixture. If it's too loose or wet, add a spoon of plain flour to adjust the consistency. Prepare fist-sized balls from the dough.
  3. Dip the balls in the chickpea flour batter; then fry them in medium-hot oil for 4-5 minutes or till they are golden brown. Transfer them to a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Repeat the procedure for all of the balls.
  4. Serve the hot vegetable bonda with tomato sauce, green coriander chutney, or a dip of your choice. Enjoy!
