Aloo Capsicum Bajji / Potato Bell Pepper Fritters / Potato Bajji

Bhaji, deep fried snack using gram flour with any desired veg like potato, onion,capsicum, brinjal, Banana Pepper and even with paneer n bread slices. It's one of the easy Indian snack which u can make it in jiffy. My favorite is Milagai Bajji and this Potato Bajji. But due to health & calorie conscious not making this fritters often but once in a while would love to have one or two bajjis. That too this chill evenings made me to crave for such hot & spicy fritters. So after a very long time I made this yummy bajji last week and served along with ginger cardamom tea for our evening snack. It was Very refreshing n filling. As i don't have banana pepper in hand i used capsicum and we loved it. Now off to the recipe...

  1. Potato - 2no. Small (sliced thinly)
  2. Capsicum - 1 small (striped/thinly cut in length wise)
For batter
  1. Gram flour/Besan Glour/Kadali Maavu        1 cup
  2. Rice flour         2 tbsp
  3. All Purpose Flour    1/2 tbsp
  4. Baking soda        a pinch
  5. Chili powder      1 tsp
  6. Turmeric Powder     a pinch
  7. Cumin seeds       1/4tsp
  8. Hing      1/4tsp
  9. Salt             to taste
  • Wash and wipe potatoes n capsicum with paper towel and slice potato into thin slices using slicer and cut capsicum in length wise strips.
  • Take a mixing bowl or any wide vessel, add all the ingredients under the heading "For Batter" from besan flour to salt.
  • Mix everything well and add water and make this to a little thick smooth batter.
  • The batter should not be too thick or too thin, refer pic.
  • Heat oil in an medium high heat till it get really hot.
  • Dip individual slice of potato n capsicum in to the batter and deep fry them in hot oil till it turns light golden brown on both sides.
  • then remove form the oil and drain them in a paper towel and serve hot with chutney or ketchup.
With the same bajji batter u can also make any desired vegetable.
To make it even more spicier, add 1/4 tsp ginger garlic paste n 1/4 tsp garam masala powder but i always prefer this simple way :)
