MUMBAI N MUMBAIKARS love Rains & Cricket

We love to indulge in some Hot & Spicy food when its pouring & if there’s a Live Cricket Match then there’s doubly the reason to Indulge.

Today I am sharing a Recipe of BHAJIYA which is widely made in almost every part of India!!

It is made with Besan ( chickpea flour) with different vegetables like potatoes, onions, green chilli, cauliflower & so on.

My Recipe is made with cooked Rice which gives a superb texture to the BHAJIYA,  U may call them the Indian Croquettes ….

Ingredients U need;

1 cup Besan/ chickpea flour 

1 cup Whole Wheat Flour 

1 cup cooked rice

1 cup curds/ yoghurt 

1 big onion finely chopped 

1 small bunch of coriander finely chopped 

2 tsp red chilli powder 

half tsp turmeric powder 

half tsp aesofoetida 

A pinch of baking soda 

Salt to taste 

Oil for frying 


Heat oil in a frying pan

Mix both the flours, salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder, aesofoetida, a pinch of baking soda 

Add the finely chopped onion , coriander & rice 

Add the curds/ yoghurt 

Mix everything well together 

Take a small amount of the Batter in a spoon & add in the hot oil, u can add 4/ 5 at a time

The gas flame should be medium, if the oil is very hot then the BHAJIYA will be undercooked from Inside

Fry till they turn golden brown,  they should be Crunchy on the outside & soft from inside..

Serve them Hot with Red / Green Chutney ..
