Methi Bajji

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Yesterday, i made this methi bajji as our evening snack.. Even though this snack is deep fried, it falls under healthy food. As, methi is bitter in taste, it helps to clean the digestive system..It is also a good source of  minerals like potassium, calcium, and iron. Fresh leaves comprises 3 to 5 % of protein. 
Instead of consuming methi with dal or as a curry, try this methi bajji. Methi bajji will be a gr8 substitute for deep fried snacks n its healthy too. 
Ingredients:
Methi: 1cup-fresh-tightly packed or 1 cup frozen
Gram flour: 11/2 cup
Rice flour: 1 tbsp
Coriander seeds: 1 tsp, make it into rough coarse powder
Ajwain/Carom seeds: 1/2 tsp, powdered
Cumin seeds: 1tsp
Green Chili: 2-3, finely chopped
Red chili Powder: 1tsp
Coriander n cumin powder: 1 tsp
Salt: To taste
Oil: to fry.


Preparation:
1) In a bowl, mix all the ingredients except oil with water adding little by little. Make it into a thick batter, like dosa batter. U should be able to drop round balls into oil... Dont make it either too thick or to watery.
2) Heat oil at medium heat. Drop small dumplings of batter into hot oil. Fry until golden brown. With a slotted spoon drain oil n place them on paper towels.
Enjoy methi bajji with chili or tomato sauce
