What's in a name- Bhajji or Pakora?

Bajji or bhajji is a spicy Indian snack similar to a fritter, with several variants. Outside the Indian states Maharashtra, Andhra Pardesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, such preparations are often known as pakora. It is usually used as a topping on various Indian meals but has become popular to eat alone as a snack. It is a popular street food in India and can be found for sale in street-side stalls and served as a comfort food at home with a piping hot cup of coffee or tea. 

Onion bhajjis are often eaten as a starter to main Indian cuisine courses, along with poppadoms and other Indian snacks. The may be served with a  side of salad and a slice of lemon or with chutney. The great attraction to a bhajji is that it is gluten free as it's made of chickpea flour!

Starting this week, we are pleased to introduce ready to eat Onion Bhajjis at Village foods with chutney.
