This snack along with hot tea is a hot favourite during rainy seasons. I have brunched on it many a times during college days. It was the most in-demand snack of our college canteen. If you like potatoes, you will only be asking for more Bonda.
Begun pora is an authentic preparation eaten in Bengal as part of everyday meal. It is healthy, tasty and simple. Whenever we had a busy day of shopping together as a family, mom would plan something like this as it was so convenient and less work after a hectic day. With a little bit of planning it is easy to make. All you need is a daal to go along. I prefer to eat it with rice, but it is also quite commonly eaten with chapatti as well with some daal and achar to go along with.
Here's a great new topping for traditional Italian bruschetta.
