I dont know how I forgot to blog about this delicious recipe. One of my cousin recently reminded me of this.
At our home, we call this Aayi’s bhaji (just to distinguish from Amma’s bhaji!!!). This is prepared with either puri or dosa.
In Konkani Paattal means ‘a substance which has more liquid’ (Please somebody give me a more suitable word here). This name is given because the other bhaji I mentioned above is a dry bhaji.
Though the ingredients for both the bhajis are exactly same, because of the different procedures of cooking, they have a great difference in taste.
Cinnamon(Chakke,dalchini) 2 inch piece
Tamarind 1/2 tea spn
PepperÂ Â 5-6
Red chillies 5-6
Coriander seeds 1 tea spn
