TH loves bajjis of any kind. But then that guy likes pretty much anything that’s deep fried, but bajjis do hold a particular soft spot in his heart. While I do make this simple aloo tikki very often, bajjis make an appearance only now and then.
I have no qualms deep frying now and then, especially if it’s a rainy day and your mood and taste buds are screaming cardamom tea with bajjis.
I always eye ball my bajji batter mix so the proportions below are approximate. I always stock besan in my freezer because although it’s a now-and-then type ingredient, it’s the most handy to have around for any kind of bajjis or bondas or even for thickening gravies. You may also like this Mysore bonda recipe or aloo bondas for a nice evening snack too.
- 1 large Potato
- 3/4 cup Besan / Kadala Maavu / Gram Flour
- 1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
- 1/4 tsp Hing / Asafoetida
- A pinch Turmeric powder
- A pinch Baking soda / Soda powder
- Salt to taste
- Oil for frying
4. Fry the bajjis in small batches in medium heat until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel.Serve hot with hot tea and a rainy day.
