Mysore Bajji ( Fritter)

Mysore bajji is a fried Pakodas. When I saw this Mysore bajji picture with a cup of coffee, I was just curious how it taste. I just gave a try. It was nice and tasty and good to have with a cup of coffee or chai or as evening snack.

Something interesting I thought. Mangalore Goli baje is liked by many and it is really yummy to eat when they are very hot and its world famous. Now how about making this Mysore Bajji and tasting it?
I have used maida, rice flour, curd and some coconut pieces. It is easy and quick and one should eat this fritters when they are hot.
Coconut chutney or any ketch up goes well with this fritters.
Lets see the recipe now.

Ingredients :

Maida (All Purpose flour) : 1 Cup
Rice Flour : 1 Cup
Curd : 1/2 Cup
Green chilly : 2
Coriander Leaves : 1 Handful
Curry Leaves : 8 to 10 leaves or more
Salt : To taste
Cooking Soda : a pinch
Coconut Pieces : 3 to 4 Tablespoons
Oil : 1 Cup (To fry)

Method :

1. Wash and cut coriander leaves, curry leaves and green chilly. Cut coconut pieces into small.

2. Take a big bowl and put maida, rice flour, cut coconut pieces, chilly  coriander, curry leaves, curd, salt and curd. Mix it well.
3. Mix it well and add a pinch of cooking soda and mix it well again.

4. Now keep a frying pan on the fire and heat. Add oil to it. Let it get heated.
5.Now take a handful of mixed dough and leave in oil like bonda (small sizes). (Squeeze the dough in oil).

6. Let it cook on both sides. Fry on medium heat. When they turn slightly brown remove from the oil.
7. Put it on a kitchen tissue. It helps to absorb extra oil in the fritter.

8. Serve Hot Mysore bajji with ketch up and a cup of Hot Coffee or Tea.

Note :

No need to mix the flour and leave it for resting. It might absorb more oil. Adding onions to the bajji batter is optional. (I have not added)
It should be eaten when they are hot. Adding more chilly is also optional.
Time : 20 minutes
Serves : 3 to 4
