      I made this healthy n filling snack long back for Sobha's protein icious event.But can't post n link to that event in time...All my recent posts were made long back n because of my break all my recipes were in draft with uploaded pictures alone.Recently i didn't cook any new or interesting recipe as am advised not to give much strain to my hands.But the new events n themes again pushing me to try some new recipes n alsogot some ideas...so plz stay connected for more interesting n yummy delights.. :-)
Coming to this ABC Bonda i.e. A for Aloo , B for Brown Beans and C for Carrot...h is it?? healthy stuffing ingredients and also i didnt deep fried them istead fried them in Paniyaram pan.After seeing Vardhini's low calorie broccoli tofu bonda i too wanted to try some bondas in paniyaram pan n adopted her method.Thanx Vardhini for sharing ..Low fat version was too good n guilt free munch...My H also liked this kind of fried snack n we all enjoyed with Hot n Sweet chilli sauce....
