Balekhai Bajji - Plantain Pakora

Tuesday, July 25, 2006

What do you need:
Plantain - 1 (Skin peeled and cut into 4mm slices)
Channa besan (Bengalgram flour) - 2 cups
Rice flour 3 tsp
Sujji Rawa 2 tsp
Chilly powder to taste
Salt to taste
Hing (Asafetida) 1/8 tsp
Baking soda 1/8 tsp (Optional)
How to make Balekhai Bajji:
* Mix all the dry ingredients and add water slowly to form a thick paste.
* Heat oil at medium-high and verify it has heated up by putting a small drop of the mixture that you just made
* Dip the vegetable in the paste and deep fry turning once to fry the other side. Once done, place the bajjias on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
*Bajji is ready! Serve hot with chutney or ketchup.

  2. Hello Archana,

    Thanks for droping by again. I found out that by using only rice flour makes the Bajjias hard after a while, so by adding sujji rawa instead the bajjias will stay crispy longer....
