Millagai Bajji

Millagai bajji is a favorite evening time snack for many of us. It goes very well with hot tea. In these winter days, spicy and hot millagai bajji will be too good, to make us feel warm. Also a cup of hot tea with it makes it so special for a winter time evening snack.

If the bajji millagai is in normal size we can use as it is. But those which I got here were big and it was hard to use it whole, by dipping in the batter and deep frying it. So I sliced the bajji millagai into 2 pieces.


Bajii millagai - 3 to 5
Besan/Bengal gram flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Chilli powder - 1 tbsp
Hing -  a pinch
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - for deep frying


1) In a bowl, make the bajji batter, by adding all ingredients (besan, rice flour, chilli powder, hing, baking powder and salt).

2) Add water little by little and make a batter that is not too thick or too watery. It should be in a pouring consistency.

3) Slice the bajji millagai into 2 halves if it is very big. (Those, which I got here were big) Else you can use it as a whole, without slicing it.

4) In a pan, pour oil for deep frying. Let it become hot. Then dip the sliced bajji millagai in the batter and leave it slowly in the hot oil.

5) Deep fry for about 3 to 4 mins. Once it changes to nice golden color and gets well cooked, take it out from oil.

Spicy and hot millagai bajji is ready to go with hot tea.
