Prawn Bajji recipe / Prawn Fritters with garlic touch

                    Bajji/fritters is an ultimate snack, that when made with any ingredient (either plantain, onion or aloo/potato,etc) will turn the whole scrumptious. That too, if the ingredient itself is divine, yes that would be my day then. The divine ingredient is nothing but prawn. It has a unique feature that, even for a beginner in cooking, the outcome will be tasty. Fritters with prawn would be heavenly, but wanted to give an unusual touch.

                       Crushed garlic and cumin, was the end for my search. The garlic and cumin added along with the fritter batter, gave a fresh flavor for the prawn bajji. My kid even just loved the taste, and so certainly a thumbs up for this recipe, from my family.

Prep Time 10 mins
Cooking Time 10 mins


10-12 nos of Prawns

1 cup Besan / Gram Flour/ Kadalai Maavu
2-3 tsp Chilly Powder
1 tbsp Rice Flour
1 tsp Rava/ Sooji
4-5 pods of Garlic
1 tsp Cumin seeds
2 pinch Asafoetida
As per taste Salt
As needed Water
As needed Oil ( For Frying)


  1. Wash the prawn thoroughly and keep it aside.
  2. In a wide bowl put all the above ingredients and mix with water to make a batter. The batter should not be too watery, it should be in idli batter consistency.
  3. Crush the peeled garlic and cumin together and add it with the above batter, mix well.
  4. Now dip the prawn in the batter and deep fry in oil.

  • Keep the flame in medium high positions, while making the bajji. Simmer position will tend to consume more oil.
  • I usually avoid adding cooking soda, as it is not good for health. But if you wish to add you can.
  • Rice flour and sooji will result in more crispy outputs.
This hot, yummmy prawn garlic bajji made my day, hopefully yours too.
