green or red pepper, cut lengthwise

cauliflower, cut into florets

jalapeno, halved

oil for deep-frying

​

For batter:

1/2 cup gram flour

1/8 cup rice flour (*2)

1 tsp. turmeric

1 tsp. ground red chili pepper

pinch of baking soda

salt to taste 

water

​

(*1): Red onion makes for a sweeter taste. 

(*2): Rice flour makes the Bajji less oily.

(*3): Putting green banana and potato in water with buttermilk make them stay white.

 

Put all the ingredients for the batter in a bowl, mix them well and make the batter a little bit thinner than pancake mix.

​

Heat oil in a heavy saucepan or deep frying pan.

​

When oil is hot, dip the sliced vegetables into the batter and fry them until golden in color.

​

Eat them with the chutney like tomato, cilantro or coconut.
