Bajji is a deep fried Indian snack. It is generally prepared by dipping a slice of vegetable in besan / All purpose flour and deep fried in a wok. Mostly they are savory snacks except for a few.
Almost a month ago I prepared this sweet bajji for an evening snack. I used plantain fruit (Etham pazham / Nenthram palam in Tamil) , a wild variety of banana. I have tasted this kind of bajji in Trivandrum, but in a long shape (Pazham pori). But I didn't want to use a lot of oil. So I sliced the fruit horizontally and dipped in AP flour , then deep fried it in enough oil.But if we want a bajji like that of the Kerala one, then slice the plantain longitudinally into 1/4 inch pieces.
Got this recipe from Malabar spices. Thanks to the author, the result was exactly like what I used to get from Kerala.
Today I got a much useful thought from Katherine about time and good friends. Thanks dear. Just wanted to share this and hope you all like it.
Ripe plantain (Nenthram pazham)- 1
All purpose flour / Maida - 1/2 cup
Rice flour - 1 tsp (optional)
Sugar - 1 tsp
Baking soda - a pinch
Salt - a pinch
Water - 3 tbsp (just enough to make a thick batter)
oil to deep fry - 200 ml (1 cup)
Peel and slice the banana into long slices / round slices of 1/4 inch thickness.
Mix all other items except oil to make a batter like thick idly batter.
Heat oil in a frying pan. Reduce to medium flame, so that there is no smoke.
Dip the banana slices one by one and carefully fry both sides till we get a beautiful golden brown color.
Don't overload the oil . fry 4 to 5 round bajjis in a course.
Gently strain the fried bajjis using a slotted spatula and remove excess oil by placing them on paper towels.
Vazhai pazha bajji is ready!
Serve as snack along with tea.

Very Crispy and Good looking snack.Must have tasted graet as wee.
WOnderful reminder. This was my evening snack most of the daya when I was in Kuwait for 3 years.
We had a shop down below, and every alternate day he used to make this ( half banana cut lengthwise) and moment I used to park my car, the helper will come rushing with 2 pieces wrapped in a paper..( that was the satnding order for him) ha ha .
We make it , but the banana ( generally the half rotten or over wriped ones) is mashed with atta and fried like pakodas,,,
