Chilli bites for the cold winter days, chilli bites with a hot cuppa tea, bajias for that any time treat!
I love sweetcorn bajias, and that is what I began making until I realised I don’t have eggs! Even though the shops are near by, I really did not want to stop my cooking marathon. Hmm… what shall I do?
Grab the pea flour from the freezer, add what you always thought would work, and think of the usual chilli bite mixture and voila! Soft, delicious, full of flavour little bites! Perfect!
Give these a whirl and let me known what you think!
1/2 cup plain flour
1 cup pea flour
1 medium onion
1 tin creamstyle corn
1 teaspoon coriander powder (coarse)
1 heaped teaspoon cummin powder
1 teaspoon cummin seeds
1 heaped teaspoon salt
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon crushed dried red chillies
1/4 cup buttermilk
Crushed green chillies
Chopped fresh coriander
Slice onion and place in a bowl of boiling water. Leave aside.
In another dish, add the rest of the ingredients. Drain the water from the onions and add to the rest of the ingredients. Mix well to get a thick batter.
Heat oil and drop spoonfuls of batter into hot oil. Fry until lightly golden.
These bajias stay soft even after its cold. Super easy and super delicious!
