Very Easy


Number of serving: 2
Raw Banana ? 3 sliced into thin slabs

Green Peppers ? 3 (slightly slit in the centre and dipped in salt water for an hour)

Gram flour (besan) ? 1 ? 1 1/2 cup

Chilly powder ? 1/2 tsp

Salt ? a pinch

Asafoetida ? 1/4 tsp

Onion ? a small one chopped finely


Oil ? for deep frying


  • Mix together all the ingredients (except the sliced bananas and green pepper) to form a smooth lump free batter.

    For the peppers, the batter should be of thick, dropping consistency. This helps the batter stick to the smooth outer skin of the pepper.

    For the raw bananas the batter should be slightly thinner in consistency.
  • So, if you are making both banana and pepper bajis, it is always better to make the mulakku baji first and then go ahead to make the kaya bajis after slight loosening the batter with more water.
  • Once the batter is made, you may heat some oil in a heavy bottomed pan until very hot.
    Dip your veggies in the batter and deep fry in the oil until golden brown.
    Remove from oil using a slotted spoon and drain off excess oil in tissue paper.

    Enjoy it hot with some steaming tea.




Good one
