The monsoon is here and with it comes the demand to make bhajiya/fritters. Specially while it rains it is a tradition in my house to have piping hot bhajiya/fritters with hot chai/tea or coffee. So here is one of my favorite bhajiya/fritter kind. It is easy to make and yummy. Since it is in form of bhajiyas/fritters all the vegetables are eaten without any fuss. So lets check out the recipe and enjoy the monsoons with these yummy and tasty fritters…
French Beans (finely chopped): 50 grams
Finely Chopped Spinach- 1/4 Cup
Finely chopped Cabbage- 1/4 cup
Finely Chopped Cauliflower or Broccoli – 1/4 cup
Sliced Onion- 1 cup
Finely Chopped Capsicum- 1/4 cup
Boiled Corn Kernels- 1/2 cup
Besan Atta/Gramflour- 1/2 cup
Rava/Semolina – 1/2 cup
Ginger Garlic Paste- 1 tbsp
Garam Masala- 1 tsp
Sugar – 1/2 tsp
Lemon Juice- 1/2 tsp
Salt to Taste
Water as required but roughly 2-4 tbsp
Oil for frying
1) Semi crush the boiled corn kernels in a mixie jar.
2) In a bowl add french beans, finely chopped spinach, finely chopped cabbage, finely chopped Cauliflower or Broccoli, sliced onions, finely chopped capsicum, crushed boiled corn kernels and mix well. Add the ginger garlic paste, garam masala, sugar, lemon juice, gram flour , semolina and salt and mix again. The vegetables start to leave their water while mixing once mixed well leave for 5 mins.
3) After 5 mins add 1 tbsp of water to make the batter little thin if required. The batter should be medium thick, not too flowly. It should coat the vegetables.
4) In a deep bottom vessel add oil and let it become hot. You can check the consistency of the oil by adding little of the fritter/bhajiya batter. If it comes up immediately the oil is ready.
5) Now add the fritters/bhajiya in the hot oil by using a spoon or your hands in small amounts. Let it cook well. The flame should be medium.
6) Serve hot with tomato ketchup or chutney or dip and do not forget tea or coffee.
Note: Be careful while frying as the half crushed corn can pop.
