My Favorite Snack: Bajji Platter

Bajji / Bhajiya was, is and will be THE all-time favorite snack. On a gloomy - rainy - chilly day, the aroma of these hot hot bajjis is exhilarating and eye-popping...:)

So, when Hima asked "Whats Your Favortie Snack" ..... I screamed, You screamed, We all screamed for Bhajiyas..:D
Also sending the same for Ashaji's RCI Karnataka Event. Bajji is a favorite snack in Karnataka cuisine.

We can use almost all vegetables worth their flesh to make Bajjis out of them. My Bajji Platter has - Paneer, Aloo, Gobi (Cauliflower), Brinjal, Brocolli, Onion, Capsicum and Bread Bhajiyas. Ya Ya, I know, that I missed out Mirchi and Plaintains. But, I didn't have any..:(.



Ingredients:

Veggies, Paneer - as listed above.
Bread slices - 2
ChickPea flour - 2 cups
All Purpose Flour - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Turmeric - 1/4 tbsp
Chilli powder - 1 tbsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tbsp
Chopped Garlic - for flavor (optional)
Chopped Green Chillies - 1/2 tbsp
Oil - for frying



Method:

1. Mix all the dry ingredients listed and make a fine batter by adding water.
2. Add the veggies, paneer and bread pieces one by one into the batter.
3. Deep fry these in hot oil untill golden brown. Drain the excess oil on a paper towel.
4. Serve hot with chilly sauce or any kind of chutney ... Sit back and enjoii ..:D

  14. Valerie - You can follow the same recipe for bread slices as well. It is called Bread Pakoda in Hindi. :-)
