Channa Bhaja

Ingredients to make Channa Bhaja

  • 1/2 cup cauliflower, cut into floret size
  • 1/2 cup potatoes, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup french beans, cut into 1 inch length
  • 1/2 cup abu siam, cut length wise (optional)
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • A pinch of red color
  • 3 tbsp water
  • salt to taste
  • oil to deep fry

How to make Channa Bhaja

  1. Take all the vegetables into a big bowl and add all the spice ingredients.
  2. Add the rice flour, food color, sesame seeds and water to this. Mix it well.
  3. By adding water, all the masala spices will be well coated with all the vegetables. Due to the rice flour the outer part of vegetables will be little crispy.
  4. Meanwhile heat oil for frying. Just put a little bit of vegetable oil in it, if it starts floating, then the oil is properly hot.
  5. Now put all the vegetables in one by one, keep the flame on medium. Flip the vegetables in between so that they are evenly fried. Make the flame little low in between.
  6. After sometime it will become crispy and golden brown in color. Remove this from oil and keep it on a paper towel so that the extra oil is absorbed.
  7. Serve it hot with any rice dish, daal and curd.

My Tip:

Generally in Odisha this dish is prepared using different vegetable like parval, french beans, potatoes, brinjal, carrot. But we are living in Jakarta and all these vegetables are not available here. So I have added these...abu siam has similar flavor as little gourd(tondli) so I have added. If you don't like you can go with only potato,cauliflower also. If you feel the vegetable mixture is little dry add more water. But if you feel the mixture is little watery then add little more rice flour so that it is well coated.
