Zucchini and onion bajji
A traditional Indian street food, bajji is served in many Indian restaurants as an appetizer. We like this recipe so much that we make a big batch and eat it as dinner.
Appetizer, Main Course, Snack
for between 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 cup shredded
small white onion
about 1/4 cup sliced
vegetable oil for frying
Slice the onion into thin quarter-circle slices.
Shred the (unpeeled) zucchini using a cheese grater. Gather the shreds into a cheesecloth or tea towel. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Fill a frying pan to 1/2 inch depth with vegetable oil. Heat over medium-high heat.
Form 1-inch-across round patties of the dough.
Fry patties in small batches for 6 minutes, turning once. (The patties should be golden-brown but not dark brown. If they are browning too quickly turn down the heat.)
Transfer to paper towels to drain fat, then keep warm in oven.
