Black-eyed Peas Potato Bonda

Its always a real pleasure to give a second life to leftovers na, actually we have to break our head to turn them as an interesting dish eventhough sometimes none at home like them, fortunately this time all my leftover creations are rocking, here comes one more recreation of leftover black-eyed peas sundal as bonda...I simply added cooked and mashed potatoes to the already tempered black -eyes peas sundal and spiced up with garam masala and chilly powder, else i went for the usual bonda batter..For my surprise, this bonda vanished within few minutes and everyone enjoyed having this crispy beauties for their snacks with green chutney and ketchup, i was really happy to create something quite different to feed my teddies for their snacks eventhough its deepfried...Do check the other bloggers running blogging marathon with me here...


1cup Black-eyes peas sundal
2nos Potatoes (large,cooked & mashed)
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Chilly powder
Salt (if needed)

For bonda batter:

1/2cup Gram flour
1/4cup Rice flour
1/2tsp Baking powder
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
Salt
Oil for deep frying

Take the sundal,mashed potatoes,garam masala powder,red chilly powder and salt (if needed) in a bowl, mix them well by smashing the black-eyed peas, make them as small balls and keep aside..


Heat the oil for deep frying...Take all the ingredients for batter in a bowl,add enough water and turn as a thick batter, dip gently the already prepared balls in the batter..Drop them to the hot oil, fry until they turns golden brown, fry them as small batches..

Serve hot with green chutney or else with a cup of tea or coffee..

  7. I don't like deep frying things, but I think I might have to make an exception with these. They look amazing. I will have to get some rice flour first. I have everything else.
