BM #93 Week 2 Day 2 -

Parties are occasions for indulgence, Right? My kids say what is a party without some deep fried goodies? So help Srivalli for her anniversary kid's party, I have fried these Bajjis which were loved by my kids.

Though I am allergic to eggplant, I rarely cook with gloves on for my folks. The kids don't mind the bajjis at all and so I am tempted to use up some eggplants for them.

Ingredients - 

Eggplant / Vankaya , thinly sliced 1 cup
Besan 1 cup (or as needed)
Mirchi powder 1/2 tsp (or as per taste)
Ajwain/Vaamu  1/2 tsp 
Salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying

Method Of Preparation -

Make the Bajji batter (the batter should be slightly thick like Idli batter) with besan, water, vaamu, salt and mirchi powder. 

Heat oil in a wok/kadai and dip the eggplant slices in the batter making sure the batter coats the eggplant slice evenly. Gently slide in the oil and fry until golden brown.

Remove the golden brown bajjis onto kitchen paper towels to drain the excess oil.

Repeat until all the slices are done.

I like to sprinkle Black salt (kala namak) after they are done.


Sending this to Srivalli's Kid's Delight event for the Kid's Delight Anniversary Party

Preparation Time 30 minutes
Serves 5-6

  19. An apt one for Indian celebrations. This is one of those dishes where I don't mind eggplants.I did not realize that your allergy is so bad that you cannot even touch eggplants.

  20. Both my kids hate eggplant and this is the only way they take it sometimes but rest in the family love eggplant bhajjis.

  21. Kathirikkai bajji happens to be my absolute favorite. Love the buttery melt in the mouth texture of the eggplant.

  22. Its been long since i have tasted bajji's!! Those eggplant bajji's look very tempting harini!!
