Vazhakkai bhajji/Plantain fritters

Vazhakkai bajji reminds me of Marina beach in Chennai. Growing up in Chennai, we used to visit the beach and this snack brings back nostalgic memories. It is a great evening snack and can be used as a accompaniment for coffee or tea.


1 plantain
1/2 cup of besan
1 tbsp of  rice flour
1/2 teaspoon ajwain
1 tsp of  red chilly powder
pinch of asafoetida
1 tbsp of club soda
1 tbsp of heated oil
Salt as required
Oil for frying


1.Peel the outer skin of plantain and make thin slices. Mix besan, rice flour, ajwain, red chilly powder, asafoetida, club soda and salt along with water to dosa batter consistency. 
2.Add the plantain pieces and coat them well with batter.
3.Heat oil in the skillet. Once the oil is hot, add the heated oil to the  batter. Then put the plantain pieces carefully in to the oil.

4. Turn to the other side as they turn golden brown. Fry in medium flame
5.Vazhakkai bhajji  is ready.Serve with chuney/ tomato ketchup and of course tea or masala chai .
