Onion Bajji ~ Onion Fritters

'Its raining, its pouring, the old man is snoring...'. That was my little one singing the rhyme in her style. S who was watching her sing got excited and asked me 'Mirchi Bajji ho jaye?' and so Mirchi Bajjis and Masala Chai for the Adults and these Onion Bajjis for the kids it was, on a rainy weekend evening.

But in the end S fried some green chillies and ate them along with the leftover onion bajjis and was going 'ooh' and 'aah'. I cannot imagine eating mirchi bajjis and then again fried mirchis with these ones too.

So for a rainy day her are some hot frietters for Day 1 Week 3 of BM #27.

Ingredients -

Onions 2 nos (I used the yellow onions)
Besan/Chick pea flour/Senagapindi 1 cup (or as needed)Mirchi powder (Chilli Powder) 1/2 tsp (or as per taste)
Ajwain/Vaamu coarsely powdered 1/2 tsp (Optional)
Salt as per taste
Black Salt and Chaat Masala for Garnish
Oil for deep frying

*Optional Ingredients - Rice Flour 2 Tbsp, Baking Soda a pinch, any other flavor enhancer (chaat masala, garam masala etc) - I opted out of all these ingredients as I was making these for the kids.

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, make the Bajji batter (the batter should be slightly thick like Idli batter) with besan, water, ajwain powder, salt and mirchi powder.

Peel the outer skin of the onions and slice them into circles taking care to keep all the layers intact in a proper circular shape.

Heat oil in a wok/kadai and when the oil is adequately hot, dip the onion slices in the batter making sure the batter coats the onion slice evenly. Gently slide in the oil and fry until golden brown.

Remove the golden brown bajjis onto kitchen paper towels to drain the excess oil.

Repeat until all the slices are done.

Typically it is served with some deep fried green chillies and a few chopped onions sprinkled with Black salt and/or Chaat Masala!
