Bread Bajji

Bajji is an Indian savory snack, usually eaten with a cup of hot tea. This snack is perfect to eat during rainy or gloomy days. There are many varieties of bajjis available, but I usually make the bajji using bread, everyone at home likes this bajji. It is very simple to make and the best thing is, you can make it ahead of time and store it in the freezer too. Whenever you need, heat it in the oven or air fryer, and it will taste the same as the freshly made one. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients

  • Bread slices ————— 5
  • Besan flour —————- 3/4 cup
  • Rice flour ——————- 1/4 cup
  • Cilantro ———————- 1 bunch (minced)
  • Green chilies ————- 2 (minced)
  • Crushed pepper ——– 1/2 tsp
  • Hing ————————— 1/4 tsp
  • Water ————————- 1 cup
  • Enough oil to deep fry

How to Make

  • Trim the brown edges of the bread slices and cut them into long pieces
  • In a bowl add the besan flour, rice flour, Hing, turmeric powder and salt
  • Mix them with water (it should be pancake or dosa like batter)
  • Now add the minced chilies, cilantro, crushed peppers and mix them well
  • Heat the oil in a deep pan
  • Now take few pieces of bread at a time, dip them into the batter and fry them in the oil
  • Cook both sides, it will take around six minutes together
  • Take it out from the oil and keep it in a tissue towel to drain the excess oil
  • Enjoy with your favorite sauce
  • In our home, my daughters like to eat with magi hot and sweet sauce
  • I made this from oat nut bread, but you can use any kind of bread
