Vazhakkai- bajji

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.

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.
