  • oil


  • In a bowl. Mix all the ingredients except the corn and onions .adding water slowly. Beat till a smooth.

  • Now add the corn and the onions and mix till just combined.

  • In a pan heat some oil for shallow frying on medium heat ( if the oil becomes too  hot it will turn brown too fast and wont get cooked inisde)

  • Using a spoon scoop one spoon of the mixure add it to the hot oil. Repeat for more baji's

  • Fry till it becomes golden brown color 3-4 minutes.

  • Flip the baji's one at a time and cook the other side too.
