  • 2 medium potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1/4 cup peas, boiled and mashed
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/4 cup gram flour (besan)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Oil for frying


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, peas, turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, and garam masala. Let your little helpers take turns mixing the ingredients together - it’s like making a colorful quilt but with food!
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the gram flour, water, and baking powder to make a smooth batter. This is where things might get a little messy, but that’s all part of the fun!
  3. Heat oil in a pan for frying. While the oil is heating up, form small balls out of the potato mixture with your hands. Show your kids how to carefully dip each ball into the gram flour batter, making sure it’s completely coated.
  4. Carefully drop the coated potato balls into the hot oil and fry until they turn golden brown. Make sure to supervise your little chefs during this step - hot oil can be dangerous!
  5. Once the aloo bondas are cooked, remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel to drain any excess oil. Let them cool slightly before serving to your hungry helpers.
