Buckwheat Aloo Bonda

Kuttu Aloo Bonda or Falaari Aloo Bonda: Delicious crispy fried aloo bonda made with gluten-free buckwheat flour.

This bonda is 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 utilize 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 for my this week’s blogging marathon theme. Actually, I had something else in my mind for 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.

  6. This is a wonderful snack whether you are savouring after breaking your fast or on any given day. Being gluten free this opens up the horizon for the gluten sensitive tummy of many. Looks so delicious.
