SEEMEBADANEKAYI BONDA/BAJJI/PAKODA/FRITTERS

Bonda/bajji/fritters is a sliced vegetable stuffed deep fried snack made during any festival/functions etc. We can use ridge gourd, green chilli, potato, cucumber, onion, chow chow (seemebadanekayi) etc. I never use maida/Plain flour in this, instead I always use rice flour with the gram flour (my mom used to do so). It turns out crispy, light and melt in mouth kind of thing. Today the last day of deepavali festival, celebrated as bhai dooj (anna tangeera habba) I made bele holige/lentil pooran poli and bajji to celebrate the occasion. In my native place (Shikaripura) it is celebrated equally grand like rest of the days of deepavali. I very often make bele holige/lentil pooran poli, as it is one of our most favourite sweets. So this time I did not make holige since last four days, but did it today along with seemebadanekayi bonda/bajji. I have already posted the recipe of the Pooran poli in my blog, so today I’m here to share my method of making bonda/bajji/fritters.

PROCEDURE :

  • Gather gran flour, rice flour, carom seeds, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger paste, hing and salt to taste in a bowl, combine everything well, now pour the hot oil and slowly add water while mixing continuously and prepare a thick batter.
  • Meanwhile heat oil for deep frying
