VAZHAKKAI BAJJI

Vazhakkai bajji recipe

Though we can make Bajji with any veggie of our choice, i love bajji more when it is made with raw banana/vazhakkai. Today i am sharing you the recipe of vazhakkai Bajji which mom makes so yummy and i still remember our childhood days, eating bajjis as a main course without having any constraint about putting weight.
Check out my onion bajji recipe with video

INGREDIENTS

RAW BANANA/VAZHAKKAI 1/2
BESAN/KADALAI MAAVU 1/2 CUP
RICE FLOUR 2 TBLSP
REDCHILLI POWDER 1/2 TSP
ASAFOETIDA 1/4 TSP
SALT AS NEEDED
BAKING SODA A PINCH(OPTIONAL)
OIL FOR DEEP FRYING

Vazhakkai- bajji


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

METHOD:

  • Combine the besan, rice flour, red chili powder , asafoetida and salt in a wide bowl.
  • Add water to this and bring to a idli batter consistency. Add 2 tsp of hot oil to this. This is to  ad crispiness to the outer layer and avoid the bajjis from drinking lot of oil.

  • Peel the skin of the raw banana and cut them into thin slices like this.

  • Heat a kadai and add the oil for deep frying.
  • When the oil becomes hot, keep it in a medium flame.
  • Dip the raw banana slices in the batter and immediately transfer it to the oil.
  • When both sides becomes golden brown, take it out from the oil .

  • Drain the excess oil in kitchen towel.
  • Serve this hot with a cup of tea /filter coffee.
  • Alternatively you can use any veggie of your choice like onion, potato,capsicum, ridge gourd, eggplant etc. for making bajjis.

Raw banana- bajji
Note:

  1. You can add 2 tblsp of idli/dosa batter to the bajji batter and this will enhance the taste of the bajji.
  2. Add hot oil to the bajji to enhance crispiness and to avoid the bajjis absorbing oil.
  3. Do not add baking soda than the amount mentioned as it will spoil the taste of bajjis.
