Urulai Kizhangu Bajji / Aloo Pakora / Potato Fritters

Bajji is a famous evening time snack that originated from Indian subcontinent. There are many varieties of bajji and in this post I am going to explain how to make urulai kizhangu bajji. Urulai kizhangu is the local name for potato in tamil. From my childhood days I have relished this delicacy. Though I have seen many people making bajji, my amma’s bajji is my all time favourite. So whenever we meet, I ask amma to make this for me. And after many trials, I started getting perfect bajjis. Since this is my amma’s cup of tea, I asked my amma to make this recipe and I shot the video. Thank you so much amma.
