Snake Gourd Fritters – Pudalangai Bajji
Snake Gourd Fritters – Pudalangai Bajji is an easy, Indian tea time snack or an accompaniment (for Rice) prepared by dipping ring-cut snake gourd pieces in batter & deep frying in oil. If you are in the process of introducing new vegetables to your kids snack, this snake gourd fritters is one of the good options 🙂
As it’s hard for me to find fresh snake gourds (except frozen) in the vegetable shops here, snake gourds had been long forgotten until my mom told me that she was making this Pudalangai Bajji for my brother. My brother has a special liking for deep fried snacks and he will try all the new dishes that are deep fried. My mom prepares fries out of most vegetables to please his palates including snake gourd, bitter gourd, okra – vendaikkai, brinjal etc. This pudalanga bajji was a great hit in my place. Though, it turns soggier soon and can not be prepared in advance, it tastes good when eaten hot and/or accompanied with rice varieties. Try this easy fritters for your next meal or coffee time snack and get thumbs ups from your diners. 😉
