Chilli Bajji Recipe
Chilli Bajji is a popular street food which pairs excellent with hot tea. As a kid I used to have it whenever we go to Kanyakumari. We don't get this in our place so very rarely in a year we buy them. Now after marriage I buy these chillies when guest arrives or on weekends. This is a simple recipe so we can do it in a jiffy during teatime.
