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 ..
