Last Thursday , it was raining and both of us were feeling like eating bajji and hot chai. As soon I reached home in the evening and made potato bajji. Actually I planned to make some onion bajji as well , but ended up making only potato bajji. My daughter also enjoyed this bajji with tomato sauce..
- 3/4 cup Besan / Kadala Maavu
- 1 tbsp. rice flour
- 1 large Potato
- 1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
- 1/4 tsp Hing / Asafoetida
- A pinch of Turmeric powder
- Salt to taste
- Oil for frying
Wash the potato and cut them into thin slices ( I used the mandolin slicer and adjusted it for correct thickness )
Take the Besan , rice flour , Salt , red chili powder , turmeric , hing in a bowl and add water slowly and mix it well to a thick batter ( it should be too watery or too thick ) . The batter should be such a way that when you dip the potato it should coat well.
Heat the oil in the pan and once it is hot , Dip the potato in the batter and add it to the oil. Turn the bajji and fry both sides until it is golden brown. Remove it and drain the excess oil using paper towel. Repeat this in small batches
You can make Coconut chutney as a side dish , we all had it Maggi tomato sauce.
Variations : instead of potato , you can use onions , paneer cubes or raw banana to make bajjis. Bread or papad can also be used to make bajji’s
