  2. In a wide bowl mix besan  flour, rice flour, red chili powder, asafoetida and add water into it little by little to make a loose batter. The batter shouldn’t be too thick but should be a little loose.
  3. Heat oil in a wide pan, dip the sliced bananas in the batter and just make sure it’s coated well on all the sides.
  4. Drop them into the oil and after 2 minutes gently turn them over.
  5. Fry them till bajji’s become golden brown. (see picture).
  6. Serve them with hot tea and mint chutney, coconut chutney etc.
