How to make Bok Ful Bhaja

  1. Carefully remove the filament from the flower. These are very delicate flower so take extra care while you remove the filament. We would not want the petals to break.
  2. Immerse the flowers in saline water for 5 minutes. This will ensure no bugs are inside the petals. Drain and keep aside.
  3. Take a mixing bowl and mix the besan, rice flour, kalonji, salt, chilli powder, hing, baking soda and enough water to make a homogeneous batter. The batter should not be runny. It should be enough thick so that the flowers can hold onto it.
  4. Heat oil in a pan.
  5. When oil, is hot enough dip the flowers as a whole into the batter and then put it into the hot oil one by one. Deep fry or shallow fry the flowers. Remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and transfer them on a tissue paper.
  6. Serve them hot and crispy with a chutney or sauce. It can be had as a tea time snack or a side dish
