    I got this recipe from Anandhavikatan a few months back and tried it. This sweet bajji is very easy to make and came out really well.


    Apple Bajji (Sweet)
    Courtesy: Chef Dhanalakshmi

    Ingredients:
    Maida - 250 gms
    Rice flour - 10gms
    Cooking oil - 150gms
    Sugar (to make syrup) - 500gms
    Apple - 1

    Mix maida and rice flour with water to the consistency of idli batter. Cut the apple into thin slices. Make sugar syrup and have it ready in a vessel. Heat oil in a kadai, dip the apple slices in the batter and fry them in the oil like bajji. Take out the bajjis and soak them in sugar syrup for 10mins and then serve.

    Cheers,
    Amudha

    Hi,

    I would appreciate it if anyone could give me examples/ recipes of after school snacks (preferable indian). My kids are tired of the usual cereal/milk, cookies etc.

    Thanks,
    Fatima

    Dear Fatima,

    You can make instant banana dosai or other dosai varities...refer Chitvish recipes. Also, veggie bajjies, pakodas, samosas ( can buy the ready frozen ones) are all good eats. I would also suggest you make toasted sandwiches with some masala veggie preperation as filling...I mention these as you said 'Indian' ones. Also potato chips sprinked with chat masala may be attractive to the little ones.

    L, Kamla
