Vazhakkai bajji/Raw banana fritters How to make Vazhakkai bajji / Raw banana fritters !
Cuisine: Indian
Category: Snacks
Serves: 10 nos
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 20 Minutes
Total time: 30 Minutes


INGREDIENTS
1 cup = 200 ml
  • Besan flour/Kadalai maavu - 1 cup
  • Rice flour - 1/3 cup
  • Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
  • Kesari color – 2 pinches (optional)
  • Hing/Asafetida - 1/4 tsp
  • Ajwain OR Cumin seeds/Jeera - 1 tsp
  • Salt - as needed
  • Cooking soda - 3 pinches
  • Water - 1 cup + 2 tbsp ( adjust)
  • Cooking oil - to deep fry
METHOD
  • In a wide bowl , mix all the flours , powders , Ajwain or cumin,salt,cooking soda and add water to make a slightly watery batter( like dosa batter). If u make it too watery, bajji will have tails Winking smile.At the same time,thick batter yields hard bajjis..The batter should be slightly thick & flow like a ribbon.It should coat the onion pieces well.Adjust water & flour accordingly.
Raw banana bajji
  • Wash and cut the raw banana into two horizontally.Peel the skin and discard it.Slice the raw banana thinly and arrange in a plate.Dip the raw banana in bajji batter.

  • Heat oil in a kadai and check with a drop of batter to find the correct heating point.ie. If u put a drop of batter , the batter will rise immediately and floats on top. As soon as u get this heating point , simmer the flame and drop the raw banana slices coated well with batter.

  • Deep fry till the color changes golden brown and the bubbles ceases.Flip it and again cook for a minute. Drain & remove in a tissue paper. Enjoy with tea/coffee!

Note
  • Addition of food color gives a nice color to bajji as u see in stalls.
  • My mom & mil adds cumin seeds but i used ajwain for an enhanced flavour. Use any as per ur wish.
  • Please don’t skip adding soda . It gives a  puffy , soft bajji. Make sure u don’t add too much because bajji will be very oily and it is unhealthy too..
  • Adjust the consistency of batter.. Batter should not be too thin or too thick. If ur batter has become too thin , add besan & rice flour in 3:1 ratio and adjust the batter.If it is too thick add more water. Always add the extra water using a tbsp & check it.

Enjoy puffy,hot Vazhakkai bajji as an evening snack with your family !
