Being one of the famous street food of Bangalore, Bajji chat is truly a delight sold in small outlets, in many famous streets of bangalore. My familiy’s favourite outlet is located in Nettakallappa Circle, Basavana Gudi, Bangalore. They have all varieties of bajjis like capsicum, Raw banana, chilli, baby corn, pineapple etc. The taste lies in the filling they use and they are generous with it like… carrots, onions, green chutney, cucumber, raw mango or lemon. Normally people end up having one of all types of bajjis and the amount will be still pocket friendly. That is Bangalore! fills your tummy without burning your pocket !

So today I’m trying to recreate what they do in those small roadside outlets, I closely watched them making, but the basic bajji batter is what I always do, and the procedure is how they do. I want to try out all of them, but at first I’m posting Baby corn bajji chat, Actually there is no perfect or particular measurement of ingredients, its according to taste and requirement.
