  • Onion – 3
  • Gram Flour / Chickpea flour / Kadala maavu – ½ cup
  • Chilli powder – ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
  • Salt as needed
  • Cooking Soda a pinch
  • Hing a pinch
  • Oil – 1 for deep frying


  • Peel the skin of the onion and chop them to slices. In a mixing bowl add in the gram flour, Chilli powder, Turmeric powder, Hing and Salt. Add water little by little and mix well to form a thick batter.
  • To the batter add in the cooking soda and whisk well. set it for 10 mins. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
  • Dip the chopped onion slices in the batter. The batter must coat the onion fully and then deep fry in hot oil in a medium flame until the bajji is turned golden or fully cooked. Drain in a kitchen towel to remove the excess oil and serve hot.


Don’t cook on a high flame. Batter changes colorfast but the onion might get cooked fully and hence cook in a medium to low flame.
Serve hot with tea.
The same batter can be used to prepare any bajji.
Use a tbsp. of dosa batter to the bajji batter for a yummy and crispy bajji. I learned this from a friend of mine.
