Bajri Wada

Bajra may have once been a “poor man’s staple”, but this nutritional grain has long redeemed it since and is favoured by every health guru today!

These tea-time fritters are made with traditional spices, curds with an additional crunch of sesame seeds, but you can also add methi to further the flavour.

Prep Time: 20 min                                Cooking Time: 25 min

2 tea cup millet (baajri) flour (atta)
3 tbsp sesame seed
3 tsp red chilli powder
3 tsp chilli ginger paste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp sugar
Pinch of citric acid
3 tbsp oil + oil to deep fry
Curd to make dough (approx 1 teacup)
Salt to taste


  1. Take the millet flour, add the sesame seed, red chilli powder, chilli ginger paste, turmeric powder, sugar, citric acid and 3 tbsp of oil
  2. With  the help of the curd make a smooth but hard dough (it should not be very soft) (add the curd gradually as required otherwise the dough may become soft)
  3. Divide the dough into small balls
  4. Take little oil in your palms and flatten the balls into a small puri
  5. Deep fry the vada  (fry both the sides until it is golden brown)
