When idli batter turns too sour to make idlis, make bajjis! The more tangy the batter, the better these bajjis taste.
This makes for a quick snack any day of the week.
You will need:
1 Cup sour Idli batter (click on link to see how to make Idli batter)
½ cup Rice flour
½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Cumin seeds
2 tbsp fresh coconut bits (or fresh grated coconut)
Vegetable/Canola Oil for deep frying
Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl. The consistency should be thick and stiff enough to scoop with a spoon (not flowing). Taste and check for seasoning, add more salt if necessary.
Heat oil in a deep pan. Scoop the batter with your fingers or with a spoon and drop in hot oil.
Fry till golden brown, about 10 seconds on each side. Drain on paper towels and eat with ketchup.
