Like all traditional bhajias, kand na bhajia is also made by deep-frying thin slices of purple yam dipped in a gram flour batter. However, the coriander seeds, sesame seeds and the freshly-ground pepper powder that are added just before frying give it an edge over its counterparts! serve this on a rainy day, accompanied by a cup of piping hot tea or coffee to enhance the experience.

Like any other bhajias, it tastes super amazing.. the pepper and coriander seeds added on the top gives a different and specific flavour to the bhajias..
