Traditional Mauritian Bhajas Recipe

Bhajas is a traditional dish originating from Mauritius. These vegetable fritters are made with a combination of chickpea flour, all-purpose flour, onions, tomatoes, garlic, mixed vegetables, green chili peppers, coriander, and baking powder.

 The flours, garlic, and baking powder are mixed with water to form a thick batter, and the onions, tomatoes, and mixed vegetables are then added to the mix with chopped chili peppers and coriander.

If desired, these snacks can be enriched by the addition of cumin and turmeric.
