BAJJI MIXTURE

                                        

 I made different snack item, but it is very familiar to Andhra people. That is bajji mixture.

This yummy treat is a famous street food in Krishna and Godavari side since a long time.
It is easy to make and tasty too. Along with that it has many benefits to eat it. Generally we are eating raw onion in this, it helps to reduce our fat. Its also a surprisingly quick meal to put together. Basically oily version of this food, has now turned into oil free version to suit perfect healthy food. Original recipe demands chopped mirchi bajji into this. I skipped this with health conscious.

A Photo tutorial of Bajji Mixture:

200gm or 4 big glasses of Puffed rice
2 tbs bajji mixture masala(follow the recipe below)
One big Onion( chopped finely)
One big Tomato( chopped finely)
1.5 tbsp chopped Coriander
1.5 tbs Peanuts( roasted)
1 Lemon



Pour the puffed rice into a big bowl.
Add one bye one the bajji mixture masala, tomato, coriander and onion to the puffed rice.


and onion to the puffed rice. Now Mix it well.


 
Squeeze out the juice from lemon  into this puffed rice. Add peanuts.


Fallow the final and important step.
Once gently knead this mixture. Careful, don't do this too much. 


Decorate with plain puffed rice. And serve immediately.



Recipe for Bajji mixture masala:

1/4 cup chickpeas
1Sp        chilly powder
1 tsp      coriender powder
1tsp       chat masala powder
               salt

Soak chickpeas in water for overnight.
In a pressure cooker cook the chickpeas along with water.If you are using caned chickpeas skip this. Remove the water from chickpeas. Make it the past, one fourth chickpeas.
Heat a kadai on stove, add reaming chickpea, chilly powder, coriander powder, chat masala powder, salt. Fry for one minute then add 1/2 glass of water and chickpeas past. Close the lid. Cook until water will evaporate.
