Aaloo Bonda

Aaloo Bonda was my favourite lunch when I was a student. Our school canteen sold it by units and it was one of the cheapest things to buy in the canteen. I remember having Aaloo Bonda hundreds of times in those wonderful years and I must admit I miss them so much. I’m sure you too have similar memories from your younger days and it is easy to relive those with this easy-to-follow Aaloo Bonda recipe.
