Tomato Bajji

Tomato bajji are famous at my husband's place and he remembers them a lot ,as he used to have them quite often when he was young. I gave  them a  try and they came out so delicious and yummy. I cannot bring back his Golden days (bcoz he is married to me LOL!!)…atleast I managed to bring the flavor of tomoto bhajji.

These are prepared with ripe round tomatoes dipped in besan batter and layered with onions, coriander leaves and roasted peanuts. 



Ingredients:

Red Round Tomatoes – 3 Medium
Besan – 1 cup
Baking Soda – ½ tsp
Salt As Required

Onion – 1
Coriander leaves – ½ cup
Chaat Masala – 1 tsp

Sev (optional) – 3 tsps
Lemon juice – 2tsps
Roasted Peanuts – 3 tsps
Red Chilli Powder – 1 tsp

Oil for Deep Frying



Preparation

  • Wash the ripe round tomatoes and dry them.
  • In a mixing bowl, add besan, baking soda, red chilli powder and salt.
  • Add enough water to make thick batter.
  • Heat oil on medium heat for deep frying.
  • When oil gets hot, dip the tomatoes into batter and coat with thick besan batter.
  • Slowly drop the coated tomato into the hot oil.
  • Deep fry the tomato until it turns light golden color all over it.

  • Remove bajji’s from heat.
  • After it gets cooled cut the tomato bajji into halve.
  • Take a wide serving plate
  • Place the half bajji’s, layer each with chopped onions, chopped coriander leaves, salt, chilli powder, chaat powder, lemon juice.
  • Lastly add sev and roasted peanuts.
  • Serve immediately.
