Zucchini Bajji / Fritters

I left with some half Zucchini in the fridge. It's the weekend and nothing there for the kids for the snack. So I have decided to do bhajji with it. It is also my kids favourite snack from their childhood. This is one snack that didn't change thro' their growing years.  It is pretty fast if you have ready made bajji or bonda mix. This is perfect tea time snack also very simple snack for unexpected guests. Enjoy!

Bajji mix - 1 Cup
Zucchini - 1/2 (I have used green)
Oil for deep frying (I have added 2.5 cup)
Water - 1/2 cup

If you don't have bajji mix

Besan flour - 3/4 cup
Rice flour -  2 tablespoon
Asafoetida / hing - a pinch
Salt per taste
Red chilli powder - 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon
Soda - pinch (optional)

Mix all the above well


Take curved vessel & mix the bajji mix with water. The batter should be thick enough to coat the Zucchini pieces when you dip. Shouldn't be watery
 Slice the Zucchini into thin slices and keep it aside
Heat the deep curved kadai. Add oil and drop a little batter to check the hotness of the water. When you drop the batter if it comes up immediately then the oil is ready for frying. Dip the zucchini in the bajji batter. Batter should coat completely around zucchini pieces. Drop it slowly in the oil. Add few pieces (make sure each pieces are separate) turn the bajji other side. cook till both the sides are cooked. When it is cooked the "Shhhh" sound will subside. Drain the oil and put it aside in a plate lined with tissue paper. Repeat the whole process till all zucchini pieces are done.
Enjoy the bajji hot with your favourite side dish. My kids love it with sauce
