My mom used to do these bajjis in the evenings for our hungry stomaches.We used to finish one round and used to wait for another round.Afterthat she says "These bajjis are for your dad".So,we will stop after hearing to her.So,afterthat i learnt from my mom and iam preparing myself and i got oppurtunity to share the recipe with you people.Beerakaya Bajji,Ready to eat
Today after making,i felt why i cant take these bajjis for Meena's Picnic at the park

Cooking Theory said...

Wow! Ridgeguard Bajji. I never tried them.I didn't know these many recipes exist with beerakaya. My mom always made either fry or pappu. This is why I love the food blogging world :)

Inji Pennu said...

Your recipes are soo precious!!

RP said...

Great recipes. You just wanted to make sure it IS a raw mango by labelling it, huh? I would do that too, it is very hard to get good raw mangoes here. Most of them will be ripe inside when we cut open it.

Latha said...

Lovely heerekai (ridge gourd in kannada) bajji! My favourite. May I suggest an additional ingredient - asofetida, a small pinch adds a lot to the flavour.

Aparna said...

That one on table is too too appetizing....
As ravi can add a pinch of Bhajji
