How to Make Bhajia at Home

Bhajia are deep fried potato pieces which are not only nice and crispy but also so yummy. They are commonly embraced by people from the coastal region.

They are not considered as the healthier food but when consumed once in a while as an alternative way of eating potatoes there is no problem.

Here are simple steps to follow when making bhajia;


1 tin of potatoes


500g of gram flour (or all purpose flour)

1 Lt Cooking oil


Finely chopped onions

Finely chopped coriander leaves

A pinch of red chilli powder


1. Wash and peel the potatoes.

2. Rinse with clean water and bring to boil for 5- 8 minutes.

3. In a mixing bowl, add flour, salt, coriander, onions and chilli powder, pour some water and mix thoroughly to make a paste with a thick consistency like that of pancakes.

4. Cut the potatoes into small round pieces.

5. Mix them with a flour paste.

6. Using a deep frying pan, put enough cooking oil and bring it to the heat.

7. Deep fry the potatoes for 8 minutes till they are brown and crispy. Avoid overcrowding them when deep frying to allow for even distribution of heat.

Can be served with desired stew or kachumbari.

Gram flour helps to give the bhajia the appealing yellow colour
