Less Oil Potato Bhajiya/ Pan fried Potato Fritters

 

Less Oil Potato Bhajiya/ Pan fried Potato Fritters are a very healthy snack made in few minutes. The potato slices coated with chickpea flour batter is pan fried with a little oil instead of deep frying it. It taste same as the regular bhajiyas and can be enjoyed guilt free any time with a cup of tea. It is vegan and skip asfoetida to make it glutenfree.

My husband and I try to avoid the deep fried food. My son loves the bhajiyas. He will wait for his dadi or nani (grandmother) to come and visit us and will request them to make bhajiyas for him.

Since Aarav loves bhajiyas and would like to eat them frequently, I have started making him the less oil version of potato bhajiyas. He loves them and they are very similar in taste. (Sometimes very occasionally, I will make for him the deep fried version as a treat for his good work).

Why to eat the deep fried food when you can make it with less oil.

So friends hope you like this healthy treat from me. Do try it and share your reviews with me.
