Bhajjis/Fritters From Assorted Vegetables as the name suggests is a snack where vegetable pieces are coated with batter and deep fried. On a cold, wintry evening what can be more inviting than a plateful of hot, spicy snack to munch along with hot cup of ginger tea (adhrak wali chaai).
So what is your snack for the day – ours was Bhajjis or Fritters this evening.
Bhajjis are fried snack where cut vegetables are dipped in flour batter and fried.
Easy to prepare without much prep time. Now I know your concern, scared of the calorie monster! Just add extra kilometers to your next walking or jogging rounds to burn them off.
The tastiest bhajjis are made from chickpea/gram/besan flour and rice flour. Very popular snack of south India that is made not only in homes but also widely available as street food. You will invariably find bhajji stalls in beaches, outside temples, near shopping areas and in street corners – the most famous being the chilli/milagai bhajji.
Sorry, but today I didn’t have these special chillies, so made bhajjis with raw banana, onion, potato, and carrot
There is no restriction to what vegetable you want to fry – try onions, brinjals, potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, capsicum, zucchini etc etc. Dip them in the prepared batter and fry.
