  • In a wide bowl,take the flours,soda,salt and mix well to a paste adding little water.Now add more water and bring it to dosa batter consistency.Make sure there are no lumps in the bajji batter.The chilli should be well coated with the batter.So make the batter slightly thick.Too thick batter gives u hard bajji and too thin batter makes tails in the bajji.So consistency of batter is very important.

  • Now take a stuffed chilli and dip in the batter.Heat oil to deep fry.To check the heat of oil,put a pinch of batter and if it rises immediately,batter is just right.simmer the flame and drop the chilli coated with bajji batter by holding its stem.
  • Deep fry both the sides till golden brown and crispy.Enjoy eating hot with tea/coffee !

You don’t need any chutneys for this.But kids may like it with tomato sauce.So serve accordingly !


Note

  • The consistency of batter is very important.To check the right consistency,just dip ur finger in batter.If its coated well,the consistency is correct.If the batter is too thin,finger won’t be coated completely.In that case,add some besan and rice flour to adjust the consistency.Check for salt n proceed.
  • For variations,u can powder & grind roasted peanuts and sesame seeds instead of gram dal.
  • Adding ajwain to the bajji batter helps for easy digestion.So do not avoid it.If u don’t have ajwain in hand,use jeera/cumin seeds.

    1. If stuffing is left over,u can spread it as kara chutney over dosa and have it :) But this quantity would be just right for the mentioned amount of chillies i guess ;)
