Brinjal bajji/Katharikkai bajji

You can make bajji with kaththarikkai(Brinjal) peerkkangai(ridged gourd), onion, vazhakkai(Raw plantain). Of all these veggies I would say Brinjal bajji is the easiest one. The pain of peeling the skin of peerkangai or shedding tears with onion, having black spots in the hand with plantain are not there with Brinjal. Just Wash it,chop it,dip in the batter,fry it! That's it!;) ;)

Half of a big Egg plant/ Brinjal
Besan/kadalai mavu-1/2cup
Rice Flour-1tablespoon
Baking soda- a pinch
Chilli powder-1 teaspoon
Cumin powder-1/2teaspoon
Hing/asafoetida - 2 pinches
Salt,Water and Oil to deep fry

Combine besan,rice flour,salt,baking soda,chilli powder,cumin powder,hing in a bowl and mix well.
Add water little by little to make the bajji batter.
Wash, and cut the egg plant into big chunks.

Heat oil over medium heat. Dip the veggie in the batter and drop it in the hot oil carefully. Deep fry till it turns out golden in colour. Take it out, drain the excess oil in a paper towel.

Quick snack for a cold n rainy evening! Enjoy with your tea or coffee. :)

  9. I love bajji! Lol, except not very fond of the oil spluttering while I attempt to fry. I make mine with a little bit of ajwain since that's how my grandma used to make it.
