Bonda, Pakoda, Bhajji…

City weather is always perfect to enjoy hot fried bhajjis and aalo bondas, roadside vendors see lot of demand for this quick favorite snack. The varieties include, potatos, raw banana, mirchi( green chilli) and capsicum to name few, these mouth watering delights seen sold at a roadside shop and people enjoying them hot and crispy!!
