Bikaner is known for this savoury snack. Deep-fried bhujia is usually made of gram flour but a variety of flours like moong, moath and even mashed potatoes are used to make different kinds of bhujia. A large number of shops all over the country sell Bikaneri bhujia which are as famous as the Rasgullas of Bengal. Bikaneri Bhujia is spicy - usually black pepper is used to add fire to this preparation. A large quantity of bhujia can be made and stored for several days in air-tight containers.

The name itself reminds us of bhujia from bikaner.. Well this was a good one for us who do not get authentic bikaner bhujia at our place..I make it in bulk and have it with tea in the evenings and also give it to my children in dabba..
