Vegetable Fritters

Bajji are delicious fritters prepared by deep frying vegetable slices coated by gram flour batter. Most of the people used to avoid taking these fritters as gram flour causes flatulence & indigestion. So here is the recipe to make easily digestible gut-friendly bajji.

IMG_1268.JPGI have added powdered ajwain or omam seeds that is used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat stomach ache, indigestion, gastritis & flatulence. You may replace ajwain seeds with oma water/ ajwain water (1 tbsp). Also I have used easily digestible fermented batter instead of baking soda to make them fluffy & used ghee for its aroma. You may use any of the following vegetables for making bajji.


Yields : 14 bajji & a bowl of of thool bajji


  1. Vegetables of your choice
  2. Gram flour (chickpea flour or kadalai maavu) – 1 cup
  3. Rice flour – ¼ cup
  4. Fermented idli/ dosa batter – ¼ cup
  5. Red chilli powder – 1 tbsp
  6. Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
  7. Ajwain (carom seeds or omam) –  ½ tsp or oma water – 1 tbsp
  8. Ghee –  ½ tsp (optional)
  9. Salt – 1 tsp
  10. Water for making batter- 1 cup
  11. Oil for deep frying


Batter making : First we need to dry roast ajwain & powder them using mortar & pestle. Then we can mix all the ingredients as shown below:
