Aratikaya Bajji (Plantain Fritters)

Bajji is a famous andhra snack and a street food too,can be enjoyed in any climate and any time of the day.I made them today after many days.I made Pulihora(Tamarind Rice) today as Bhogi Special adn wanted to have bajji as side dish.I got to know about this combination from my friend Archana,she usually make mirchi bajji but I didnt want to have that spicy mirchi bajji for lunch.
Here is the recipe.


Plantain:1(peeled and cut into 2 inch length slices)
Gram Flour:6 spns
Rice Flour:1 spn(this makes the fritters crisp)
Salt:To Taste
Chilli Powder:To Taste
Cooking Soda:2 Pinches
Oil:For Deep Frying


1.Heat oil in a frying pan for deep frying the bajji.
2.In a bowl take Gram Flour,rice flour,salt,chilli powder,cooking Soda mix well now add water and make a smooth paste of gram flour,make sure that it has no lumps,the consistency of the besan flour should be too thin or thick it should just hold the plantain when dipped in.
3.When the oil is hot take each plantain slice,dip it in besan mixture and hold it for just a second so that excess batter drips and then drop them in hot oil and fry till golden color on both sides evenly.
4.When done put them on paper towel,when the excess oil is absorbed by the towel serve them hot.
I served them with onion masala.My Favourite combination.
