Bajji

Bajji:

Bajji falls under Indian crispy and quick snack category. Thats why I take this liberty to mention that this is the only snack all the men would love to cook. (especially during their bachelor party days). :)

Ingredients.
Besan flour - 1 cup
Chilli powder - 1 tspn
Jeera - 1/2 tspn
Salt as required
Hot Oil- 1 tspn
Soda - a pinch (optional)
Oil for deep frying
Water as required

Vegetables which can be used :
Potato
Ridge guard
Onion
Raw banana
Bread

Method:
1) In a bowl mix the besan, chilli powder, jeera, salt, soda, and hot oil and mix well with little water to bring it to a idly batter consistency.
2) In a pan add oil enough to fry the bajjis and turn on the stove.
3) While the oil is getting hot, cut the vegetables of your choice into thin round slices, and keep aside.
4) Once the oil is hot, take one slice of vegetable and dip it into the bajji batter and drop it carefully into the hot oil. (You can add min of 5 bajjis in one go, based on how big or wide the pan is)
5) Deep fry the bajjis till they turn golden brown and now they are ready to be served with green chutney, sweet/tamarind chutney or even coconut chutney. It can also be eaten with tomato sauce or any dip of your choice.
