This is a perfect tea time snack and with just one potato and one onion you will have plenty of Bajjies.


Gram flour-------------------------------------1/2 Cup
Maida-----------------------------------------1/2 Cup
Rice flour--------------------------------------1 Cup
Soda(which we use for aappam)---------------1 Liberal pinch
Hing-------------------------------------------1/4 Tsp
Chilly Powder---------------------------------1 1/2 Tsp
Salt as required
Oil for frying


Mix all the flours and sift it through a sieve and mix all the other ingredients and make a thick batter,as you make for Dosa.Cut Onion and Potato into thin slices and keep.Heat the oil in a Kadai and when it is hot(not fuming) dip the slices one by one in the batter and slowly glide it in the hot oil.Fry both the sides, by carefully turning the bajjies and when it is golden brown remove it from the kadai and spread on a tissue,so that the excess oil is absorbed.Yummy bajji is ready.You can serve this with sauce or coconut chutney or even pudina chutney which they serve in the Marina beach.Hmmmm...I am drooling:)

For  the Pudina chutney:
Take a small bunch of Pudina and take the leaves and wash it thoroughly.
Take one small size onion, a small tomato,one inch piece of ginger and three green chillies and saute in a spoon of oil for just a minute and add salt and grind it in a mixer grinder adding very little water.The yummy pudina chutney is ready.If  you want you can add a small piece of tamarind(while grinding) or add a spoon of lemon juice after grinding and this will give a  tangy taste.
