I jumped out of the bed, whipped up the batter and made these bajjis and hubby was happy eating the hot bajjis with his favourite coconut chutney. But I had to stop my temptation till I clicked the pics then happily started munching them :)

Recipe Category: Snack | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian

Besan flour - 3/4 cup
Rice flour - 1/4 cup
Potato -2 medium sized
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Orange food color - a pinch(optional)
Oil - to deep fry

  2. Add water and make it to thick paste first without any lumps. Then add water little by little to form a thick batter(like the dosa batter but not too runny). Heat oil - Dip each potato slice in the batter, turn to coat well on both the sides.

My Notes:

  • Make sure the batter is not too runny else the batter will not coat well on the veggie.
  • Adding baking soda gives fluffiness and soft texture to the bajjis but you can very well skip it too.

  17. Hi - I have a question about besan flour. Do you have to keep it in the fridge or will it keep at room temperature? I'm American so I don't know about besan, but I bought a bag of it at the Indian store.


  18. Yummy and so colourful...Like the pics...Keep rocking

  19. @Pythonesk99 : If you want to store it for long then refrigerate no need to freeze it...

  23. can we make it without rice flour...or can i add maida as a substitute for rice flour.....

    1. I am not really sure of substitutes for rice flour.......

  24. Hi .. is baking soda surely needed ...

    1. It gives fluffy texture n gives softness to the bajji....so I recommend adding it
