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.

Thanku so much for replying mam but problem fry krne me nhi aa rhi jo dough h uska color hi dull hoja rha h...Is it coz of moath flour.....Kya isme moath flour ki quantity kam karu to kya meri bhujia ka color accha hojayega??Aaj mene wapis bhujia banai aur usme turmeric powder bhi daala fir bhi color thoda sa hi change hua but still color is dull

Tarla Dalal    Hi Vanshi, Please make sure you drain the bhujia when it is lightly browned and also do not over heat the oil to much that it gets black soon.

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..
