Bajri Vada



A wonderful fried snack from the state of Gujarat.

This recipe makes about 20 vadas.

1 cup bajri flour (millet flour)

1 table spoon  wheat flour

1/3 tsp turmeric

1 tea spoon finely chopped hot green chili

1/2 tea spoon grated ginger

¼ tsp hing

3 tbsp yoghurt

3 tsp sesame seeds

1/4 tsp red chili powder (1/2 tea spoon if you prefer more spicy)

1 table spoon oil

1/2 tea spoon Salt

2 tea spoon fine sugar

In a wide bowl mix all the ingredients. Yoghurt should be  enough to make dough but if required, wet hands and then knead dough. knead the dough again with about 1 tbsp oil. On the side, heat about 3 cups of oil in a frying pan. Make a stiff dough and immediately shape into vadas by taking a small lemon size ball and pressing it in your palm .  Fry  vadas immediately on low heat until light brown.

You can eat the vada as is, with green chutney or any hot indian pickle.
