R does not like bland stuff so you can guess his reaction when he saw my mushroom pete, but for me it was a case of My Stomach happy so I am happy :) so decided to make menasina bhajji for him and in-laws.
Menasina Kayi - 10
Gram flour - kadale hittu - 1 cup
rice flour - 1 tbsp
red chillis powder - as per taste
hing - 1 pinch
Make a Slit in the menasina kayi so that you can remove the seeds. (Make a slit from the stalk till the end on one side, use a spoon to remove the seeds)
Make a batter with gram flour, rice flour, salt, red chilli powder and hing.
The batter should not be watery.
Heat oil in a pan.
When the oil is hot enough Dip the menasinakayi in the batter and deep fry till golden brown.
Drain and serve hot.
