Heerekai Bhajji is a traditional deep-fried savory snack from Mysoorean cuisine. Its is made with heerekai (Chinese okra or ridge gourd) dipped in a mildly spicy chick pea batter.
Often when I pay a visit to my aunts place, I demand to make heerekai bhajji which is treat for all my family members. My aunt taught me how to make this deep-fried snack which is extremely crisp on outside; soft, juicy and tender on inside.
1 Heerekai ( Chinese okra or Ridge gourd), circular and thinly sliced
1 cup gram flour (chick pea flour)
1/2 tsp Cyan e pepper
3/4 cup water
Oil for deep frying
