The Cheese Stuffed Aloo Bonda Recipe is a twist to the traditional Aloo Bonda recipe. Aloo Bonda is a very traditional South Indian tea time evening snack, that is made most often during festivals and special occasions. This delicious snack is usually deep fried, but in this recipe, we have used a Kuzhi Paniyaram Pan, the taste is absolutely the same as the deep fried ones. Serve the Cheese Stuffed Aloo Bonda along with a spicy Coconut Chutney along with a cup of steaming coffee.
