India is a place for variety of snacks ranging from delicious sweet desserts to fiery hot Pani Puri’s. We show equal love towards the Dhoklas, the Pav bhaji’s and Bhajias or Bajji’s. When it comes to South India Bajji’s or Fritters are very important snacks and are a must on road side stalls. Nobody would hesitate to stand on the roads with some Bajji’s wrapped in paper in hand. A friend just passes and says a hello on the road, then the person extends his paper wrapped bajjis to him. This friend first hesitates and then slowly gulps down a few. Typical scenario at the snack stalls.

Ridge Gourd Bajji is one such tasty fritters made mostly in Andhra and Karnataka. Very few stalls offer this Ridge Gourd Bajji and it’s mostly prepared at home. Sometimes it’s prepared on festivals.

Ridge Gourd Bajji is very easy to prepare though its time consuming as it involves frying. But I bet it doesn’t remain for the time you spent on making them. They just get over when they are hot. It’s nice and fun to see people struggling to bite the hot bajji, trying to cool them by blowing. So once the bite goes in, it’s extremely satisfying.
