Capsicum Pakoda / Bajji Recipe.

Posted by Unknown at 11:18:00
Capsicum Pakoda or otherwise well known as capsicum bajji is one of the oldest but the spiciest fritter recipe which is preferred on any rainy day. Here, in this recipe capsicum is dipped in chick flour batter and then deep fried. It is one of the best capsicum recipes and can be done very quickly when you have unexpected guests. The procedure of the recipe is more or less same as that of onion pakoda but I have given a small twist to the recipe. I have already published some of the recipes of capsicum like capsicum masala, tawa pulav and this is an addition to the list.

KitchenMasti Points.

  1. You may add 1 / 2 tsp of baking soda to the besan batter to get crispy texture for the pakodas.
  2. Adding 1 tbsp of hot oil to the batter is another way to make the pakodas crispy.
  3. Capsicum may be diced in any shape of your choice.
  4. You may skip the marinate procedure if you opt for a less spicier version of pakoda.
