Aloo Bonda ( Potato Stuffed Dumplings)

Aloo bonda is a very famous street  food  in south india.I remember the rainy days, where we used to buy it from local teas shop.The taste can never match five star hotels.Me and my siblings will have a tug of war to have a big portion.Hmm I am missing chennai a lot....To compensate that, I started preparing everything at home.Today we had a guest and when I served him with this aloo bonda , he was totally surrendered to the taste.I was delighted .Wat gift can a cook get other than appreciations abt her cooking.....He made my day..
