Sorakaya Bajjilu - Boottle Gourd Fitters

I am not a big fan of snacks but my husband like to eat snacks other then main course. Bajji's (fitters) are one of the favorite snack for him but not mirchi bajji( green chilli fitters). He likes other vegetable bajjis like onion, brinjal, ridge gourd and bottle gourd. My favorite is mirchi bajji's..
 I never saw my MIL making bajji's but she makes onion pakodi's so very well. My mother used to make bajjis with almost all vegetables and she make a slit on bajjis and stuff them with chopped onion and coriander leaves .I like that way to eat bajjis.
Here to day I made bajjis with bottle gourd but you can make with any other vegetable like potato, onion, brinjal, ridge gourd, raw plantain, green leaves like palak and vamu aaku ( I don't know the name for this leaf in english), cauliflower, baby corn, capsicum.
Here is the recipe for Bajji's
Photobucket INGREDIENTS:--


 Bottle gourd--- 1 peeled and cut in to rounds
Chick pea flour --- 1 cup
Ginger and green chilli paste  --- 1 tea sp
Ajwain(carom seeds) --- 1/2 tea sp
Red chilli powder --- 1/2 tea sp
Rice flour -- 1 tab sp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

METHOD:-

1.  Peal outer skin of bottle gourd ,wash and cut in to rounds make sure that seeds should not be there. If you find seeds cut in to half circles and remove the seeds.

2.  Mix chick pea flour,ajwain, ginger and green chilli paste,  chilli powder,salt to taste rice flour in a bowl add some water and make a batter for bajji's
3. In the mean while  heat oil in a deep frying pan, dip bottle gourd pieces in the chick pea flour batter and drop in to the hot oil and fry till golden color

 4.  Remove from oil and serve with tomato sauce or green chuteny and also you can serve with dal chaval and this bajji's.
