Vazhakkai Bhaji Recipe | Raw Banana Fritters | Vazhakkai Bhaji - Quick Tea Time Snack Recipe

Vazhakkai Bhaji Recipe
Bhaji is one of the easiest and quickest tea time snack. Bhajis are the most common snack prepared instantly for unexpected guests at home. Mom often makes Bhajis for our snack time since my sister loves bhajis especially vazhakkai bhaji. And also these bhajis are easy and quick to make.
In my home town, vazhakkai bhaji is popular and you can find in most of the road side shops & Tea Shops during evening time. They serve Vazhakkai Bhaji with a Onion Masala and coconut chutney. I wanted to share this recipe along with onion masala but because of lighting problem I skipped it. May be I will share it later.

Winter evenings or Rainy days sure needs some hot and spicy snack that too the deep fried snack like Onion Pakora, Potato Bhaji, Vazhakkai Bhaji, Masal Vadai are most welcomed at home. I am not a fan of bhajis I only just taste one to check salt and spice. But V and kids like it a lot. So for them once in a while I make bhajis and other deep fried snack.

Vazhakkai bhaji should be crispy and puffy, it is different from my regular Potato bhaji & Milagi Bhaji measurement. I also added Chilli Garlic Chutney, that I posted a while back to the bhaji batter
and it turned out so flavorful spicy and tasty. You can also simply replace chilli paste with chilli powder and use garlic paste or garlic powder.
