I boiled potatoes in the pressure cooker so it was lil mushy. Added breadcrumbs to make it as balls. Tasted awesome. That's why my husband had only 7 bondas .
I had some leftover potato masala ( which I had made for masal dosai..:) and it was sitting in the fridge with a longing look what are you gonna do with me. Presto!!! I remembered this recipe of urs and took out my kuzipaniyaram pan and started making these. It was a perfect snack to munch during grammy awards. Unfortunately I couidn't take a pic cos everything vanished b'fore I could click it...
Mine is Cast iron :) --DK
I havent done that personally. But I have made the filling in advance and shaped into rolls. I refrigerated those and the next day I just whipped up the flour mixture and made them in the pan

I would have mentioned it if that was the case.:) No u dont need to
I guess it should if you use other pots and pans to cook on it
This was cooked on stove top not in an oven. Drop the batter only when oil is hot. I am not sure exactly how long it takes (depends on whether you have electric or gas stove - mine is electric) but I would estimate about 6-8 minutes for one bonda to be completely cooked on all the sides. You would have to turn it when one side is done to other sides until all the sides are browned
No sweets - I made it when she and S came over for dinner..will post it for you soon :) :)
Yes the same...:)
I never call this oil free - I only said its low calorie. Deep frying takes in more oil than mere 1 tsp of oil. Depending on the size of your bondas, u will need less or equal to 1 tsp of oil and its sufficient to make one whole bonda on all the sides. Try making it, you will see the difference :)
Its available online or in the US under the name of Pancake puff pan too... :)
I have personally not tried it, but I have seen this long iron ladle my mom has which she uses to temper. You probably can try that by heating little oil and frying up the bonda. The only downside I can see id the time and effort of doing one bonda at a time! :(
I am not sure idli cooker will work..can you place your idli plate directly on the flame???
Onion Pakoda I have tried with not so good results..the space is too small to fry up the pakodas...hasnt worked that well for me till date..if it does - will post it :)
I dunno where you are currently. But its available in the US under the name of Pancake Puff pan ( or Aebleskiver pan) in Target, Walmart etc :) You can find the same in Amazon.com
