Batata Vada Recipe
Batata Vada is a spicy and delicious deep fried snack prepared using potato/aloo/batata. This recipe is almost similar to the south Indian Urulai kizhangu Bonda/Masal Bonda, expect the use of spices and potato filling preparation is different. Anything with potato is most welcomed at home and that too a deep fried snack is sure a hit. My kids enjoyed this snack. Batata vada can be prepared in no time, if you have some boiled potato in hand then you will need only 10-15 minutes to make this yummy snack.
I prepared this batata vada last week especially to share here, because I lost all my drafted food pictures due to hard disk issue. I usually, I write the recipe and save it in blogger and only on the day of posting I upload the pictures till that time it will be in my personal laptop. And Now, all the food pictures were lost due to my laptop issue and we couldn't retrieve any data from hard disk. So, I have to cook and click for my further posts. I will try to cook and share some easy recipes.
