Buckwheat Aloo Bonda

Kuttu Aloo Bonda or Falaari Aloo Bonda: Delicious crispy fried aloo bonda made with gluten-free buckwheat flour. This bonda are a must during Navratri fasting in my family. If I do not make them my elder one starts asking when are you going to make those “gol gol” something?? So even if I think of not making deep fried foods in fasting I would be forced to make this aloo bonda.

The best way to utilise leftover buckwheat flour is to make these bite-sized snacks for my kids and they love enjoying them. I made them a couple of days back during fasting and posting for Bite Size snacks fo my this week’s blogging marathon theme. Actually, I had something else in my mind fo today’s post but had to rely on this post from drafts as after opening my fast today I was too tired and lazy to cook something. As always the Navami or the day we open ou fast, I don’t like to cook anything else besides the chana poori halwa prasad that we love eating the whole day.
