Now we have to prepare the batter.Take another bowl and all the besan,chilli powder,salt,ajwain,baking soda and required amount of water .
The batter should be dosa batter consistency.
Place the Guntaponganalu pan and heat it.
When it gets heat  pour little oil in each cup .
Now take the aloo balls and dip in the batter and drop in each cup individually.
After 1 minute with the help of spoon or frk we have to turn the bonda to another side and cook for 1 more minute.
