Baby Corn Fritters/Bhaji - DIY - Bhajji Mix

Baby Corn Fritters/Bhaji 

We all love Bhajjis, especially during winters they are a must have. This recipe is a sure shot way to get crispy Bhajis. I have used baby Corns, you can use Onions, Chillies, Paneer anything you like.

So in this recipe I would sharing how to make the basic Bhaji batter that can be used to make Bhajji or fritters.

Besan/Gram flour - 1 Cup
Rice Flour - 1/2 Cup
Sooji/Rava - 1 Tablespoon
Turmeric Powder - A generous Pinch
Hing/Asafoetida - A generous Pinch
Salt - To taste
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1/2 Teaspoon
Red Chilly Powder - 1/2 - 1 Teaspoon
Garam Masala - A pinch
Chat Masala - A pinch
Baby Corn - As needed (Parboiled)
Drinking Soda - As required  (Refer Notes)
Oil - For Frying.


  • In a kadhai, place the oil for heating on the stove on Medium flame. 
  • In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients expect the Baby corn and soda and mix well. 
  • Now to this add drinking soda and mix till till you get the batter of a thick Doa batter consistency.
  • Now Take Baby corn and dip it in the batter and place it carefully in the Hot oil and cook it till it becomes Golden Brown on all sides.
  • Remove it using a slotted ladle and keep it on a Paper Towel to drain excess Oil.
  • Serve hot with tea/Coffee. 
  • You can use water instead of Drinking Soda to prepare this dish. Using Drinking Soda makes the Mixture Airy and lighter.
  • I have also seen my mom add Warm Oil to the Bhajji mix. She mixes all ingredients and adds some Warm Oil and leaves it for a minute or 2 and then adds Water and prepares the Bhajji.
  • Ensure that the batter is not too watery or else it wont stick to the Baby corn or any other ingredient you are using to make Bhajji.
  • Ensure that the Oil is at medium heat, if its is too much of heat it will then only the outer layer will cook and the inner layer will remain uncooked.
  • If the Oil is not hot enough then the Bhaji will drink the Oil and it will be too Oily.
