A perfect evening snack for a rainy weather -- Fritters or Bajji

There is something about the rains; it always brings the child out in me! The pitter-patter of the rain drops on my window makes me want to snuggle up on my couch, with a hot cup of tea/coffee and just watch out of the window.
Just like the rain water cleanses mother earth, I feel cleansed from within with new hope and a longing to try out something new or maybe something old. And what better than good old Bajji/ Onion Fritters.

Here is the simple and easy perfect snack for a rainy day.



1 cup of all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1tsp of jeera/cumin seeds
1 big or 2 medium sized Onion finely chopped/ or julienne
1 small piece of ginger finely chopped
2-3 green chillies cut into small pieces (As per the spice you can adjust ) this can be replaced with red chili powder as per your spice level.
Oil to deep fry

In a bowl add all purpose flour,chopped onions, chopped green chillies, ginger, cumin seeds ,salt, baking soda with water like a thick batter. Keep it aside for 10 - 15 mts. In a frying pan heat oil.
Once oil is hot use your fingers to drop batter in the form of fritters in hot oil or use spoon to drop the batter in the oil. Using laddle turn the fritters so that fritters cook evenly. Fry them till they turn golden color on medium heat. Once fritters turn golden color remove from oil and keep it on paper towel. This helps to absorb excess oil.

Serve it hot with ketchup or any chutney. Perfect evening snack for a rainy day.
