A- Z of Indian Vegetables: A mixed platter of Zucchini Bhajjis

by Priyanka posted at 5:32 PM 7 comments

This is going to be a short post. Am caught up with some work but since i couldnt contribute to the two earlier ones, i didnt want to miss out on Nupur's last series... Wanted the last entry to be something grand like zaaykedar or zesty something but here it is- something quick and tasty to boot- Zucchini Bhajjis. Sorry Nupur:)

This is a mixed platter of bhajjis- plain zucchini bhajjis, zucchini and methi bhajjis, and zucchini and onion bhajjis.

All you need for this is


1 zucchini (diced)

7 tbs gram flour (besan)

salt to taste

1/2 tsp red chili powder

4-5 green chilies chopped

1/3 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp ajwain

3 tbs kasuri methi

1 small onion, julienned


oil for frying

1. Add salt, chili powder, turmeric, ajwain, green chilies to the besan, and add water to form a thick batter. Mix uniformly to break all the lumps.

2. Dip a couple of pieces of zucchini in the batter and slowly release into the oil for frying (the oil should be hot enough- preferbaly start heating it up 10-15 minutes before you begin frying).

3. When the bhajjis turn brown on both sides remove and place on paper.

4. Next add the kasuri methi to the batter and dip a couple more zucchinis into the batter and fry as described in steps 2 and 3. Fry as many as you want.

5. Now add the onions to the batter, add the zucchini pieces and with your hand or a spoon relaease the mix of onions and zucchini into the oil for frying.

6. Remove and serve hot with ketchup.
