Bajji,Bonda and Pakoda Mix

Bajji,bonda and pakodas are the tempting deep fried snacks with the same base,the gram flour and rice flour.
I always make the mix and store it in the freezer to make bajjis or pakodas in no time if there is a unexpected guest.
This recipe I got it from one of our family cook and here goes the recipe.................


Gram flour/kadalaimaavu3cups
Rice flour/arisimaavu3tbs
All purpose flour/maida3tbs
Red chilly powder/milai podi1tbs
Cooking soda1/8tsp
Turmeric powder1/2tsp


                             Take all the measured ingredients in a wide bowl and mix it well using a spatula or put everything in a food processor and pulse it till everything gets mixed well.
Store it in an air tight container or a zip-lock bag.

  • It can be stored in the freezer for 6 months.
  • After mixing everything,you can sieve it in a strainer and store it.
  • If you want to use food color it should be added at the time of making the bajji or pakoda.Do not add in the mix while storing.
  • A tbs of cornflour can also be added and the amount of salt can be adjusted according to the personal preference.

Cauliflower Bajji or Pakora using the Homemade Mix

Making the bajji or pakora is very easy if the mix is handy and today's recipe is Cauliflower pakora as I don't have any other veggies.


Bajji mix1/2cup
Food color(optional)a pinch
Wateras needed
Oilfor frying
  • Put the cauliflower florets in the boiling water for a minute with a pinch of salt and drain it,keep aside.
  • Take the bajji mix,food color in a bowl and add water and stir it with a whisk or spoon and make a batter without lumps.
  • Heat a wok or pan with oil,once the oil becomes hot dip one floret in the batter and drop it in the oil,continue for the rest of the florets.
  • Fry it in the oil till it becomes golden color or the sizzling sound stops.Remove it from the oil and drain it on a paper towel.
  • Serve it with ketchup or sauce of your choice.


  • The batter should be in dropping consistency,it should not be too thick or thin.
  • Veggies of your choice can be used to make the bajji.
  • If the prepared batter is more,add the thinly sliced chillies,curry leaves and a pinch of salt and mix it well,fry it in the oil till it gets crispy.

While deep-fried snacks can be tempting, they are often high in unhealthy fats. A great alternative is baking or air-frying your favorite snacks. But if you occasionally indulge, consider supporting your digestive health with high-quality supplements like those found on
