For Today it is Bread Bajji under the Street Food category. How it is Street Food ? so here goes the explanation. Tea kadai and bajji stalls are famous in Tamil Nadu. With the soaring prices of vegetables, bread is an easy option to make bajji for the vendors. Any tea stall or Bajji shop on the beach, you go.. there is always an option of bread bajji. It would be soaked in oil, that is a seperate issue on its own. But the combination of bread and besan gives an a very nice taste. I personally love to eat bread bajji.
The version I am going to explain today, is slightly different. This is something that I had learnt from my Periamma. She makes it in the tawa with very less oil which in turn makes the bajji a healthy one. We had made this during my visit for my nieces.
Bread - 10 pieces cut diagonally
Besan - 1 cup
Omam - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
salt - to taste
Red Chili powder - 1 tsp
Oil - a little
In a bowl add besan powder, omam, jeera, salt, red chili powder
Mix well so as there is no lumps formed
Add very little water and make it a paste
Heat the tawa and add 1 tsp oil
Dip the diagonally cut bread into the besan paste and place it on the tawa
Ensure that it cooks well on both the sides and flip frequently.
Once done serve hot with tomato ketchup or pudhina chutney
This can be given as a breakfast or an evening snack
