In Sandy’s words…

For this Week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge the key word is UNIQUE.Tell me about something unusual or UNIQUE that you’ve seen , experienced or read about in your hometown or travels. Take ( or borrow ) a photo and describe what made UNIQUE to you

Unique Indian Delicacy

” One of the nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating” Luciano Pavarotti

Who is better qualified than Luciano Pavarotti to quote this!

“Eat as nobody is watching. Enjoy food as if that is the only thing left in your world” Nikita Dudani

This Indian Delicacy is known by the name ‘BONDA’

What is this Bonda to do with James Bond?

Good question.

I got attracted to a wall photo frame of James Bond titled ‘James Bonda’, in one Restaurant, humorously comparing the popular Indian Dish ‘Bonda’ to the popular fictional British Secret service Agent.

My guess is advertisers wanted to show their taste of Bonda!! And Bond and Bonda almost sounding similar!

“I always enjoyed learning a new tongue” James Bond movie line- from the film Tomorrow Never Dies

Bonda is a typical South Indian snack that has various sweet and spicy versions of it in different regions.

It’s a deep-fried potato snack.

If you are interested in the recipe of Bonda, check this link- ALOO-BONDA

Are you aware of the popularity of the term BONDA?

If you type bonda in Google search, the word Bonda has a web popularity of 2,68,00,000 pages at the time of writing this post.

Whenever you visit India, whether North India or South India…..don’t miss to taste ALOO BONDA.

Thank you.

    Pavarotti loved good food. And what a clever marketing approach to connect Bond and Bonda! This is definitely unique.
