I prepared this bhaji today as an accompaniment with theek puri.This is a dry bhaji which is very easy to prepare.This is my Amma s recipe and is one of the best recipe.My Amma adds coconut bits which enhances the taste.She used to prepare this often for my Papa s sake,since this is his favorite dish with the combination of puri.I'm posting this separately so that it is easy to link whenever required.Goes well with Theek puri.
