Today I am here with easy to make bajji using bread- Bread Bajji. The bread slices are dipped in batter and are deep fried and served warm. Usually Bajji is made with vegetables like onion, potato, brinjal or plantains. But it can also be made with bread. This can be a great evening snack with tea. You can serve it with coconut chutney or tomato ketchup like I did.
This is a easy recipe the key for perfect bajji lies on the consistency of the batter and the temperature of the oil. The batter should neither be too thick nor too thin. While dipping in the batter, make sure it is covered evenly on all the sides and also the coating should not be thick, if there are excess batter shake them off. Then while frying maintain the oil in medium heat to ensure even cooking. Just with these things in mind, you can get perfect bread bhajji every time.

Prep time :   Cook time :   Total time :
Yield : 4 servings

Ingredients :

  • Bread Slices : 4 - 5 nos.
  • Kadalai Maavu / Besan / Gram flour : 1/2 Cup
  • Rice Flour : 2 Tablespoon
  • Corn Flour : 1 Tablespoon
  • Turmeric Powder : 1/4 Teaspoon
  • Chilli Powder : 1/2 Teaspoon - 1 Teaspoon
  • Cumin Powder : 1/2 Teaspoon (optional)
  • Asafoetida : A pinch
  • Baking Soda : A Pinch
  • Salt : As needed
  • Water : As needed for the batter
  • Oil : To deep fry

Instructions :

  1. Slice Bread diagonally or as desired. My bread was bigger in size, so I cut it diagonally into 4 pieces. Also if needed, you can trim the edges of the bread. I didn't do that.
  2. In a bowl add all the flours, turmeric powder, chilli powder, cumin powder, asafoetida, baking soda, salt and mix well. Then add required water to prepare the batter. Mix the batter well such that it is smooth and are no clumps.
  3. Heat the oil in a fry pan.
  4. Dip the bread slices in the prepared batter such that it is evenly coated on all sides. Shake off excess batter and deep fry in medium heat till it is golden brown. If needed turn them to the other side in between. Repeat the process for the rest of the slices.
  5. Remove them, drain excess oil and serve them warm.

Notes :

  1. You can use white bread or wheat bread.
  2. If needed, you can add Ginger garlic paste 1 teaspoon in the batter.
  3. Oil temperature is very important while deep frying. If it is too hot, will burn quickly without cooking inside and if it is low, then it will absorb more oil.
  4. Batter consistency is also more important. It has to be neither too thick nor too thin. I added a little over 3/4 Cup of water.
  5. While serving you can sprinkle some chat masala, if you prefer.
