After the success of Baked Vada, I very enthusiastically baked Bajjis and was very happy with the result. Although Spring is finally here, there have been days of cold frigid temperatures, rain, flurries and even snow. During such times, it is rather soothing to eat some deep fried food such as Bajji and sip some hot spiced tea.
1/4 cup besan (chickpea flour)
salt to taste
1/4 tsp red chilli powder or as much as you want.
1-2 small potatoes
1 small onion
1-2 firm green tomatoes
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking pan by generously greasing it with oil.
Mix besan, with salt and chilli powder. Add some water and mix the batter.
Thinly slice onions, potatoes and tomatoes. You can use any favorite vegetables such as zucchini, banana, eggpplant and more. Dip the sliced vegetables in the prepared batter and lay them out on the baking pan.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until cooked, flip them and cook for anther 10-15 minutes on the other side.
They are great served with ketchup and some hot, spicy chai on a cold or rainy day!
