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!
This Indian Delicacy is known by the name ‘BONDA’
What is this Bonda to do with James Bond?
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!
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.
