Feeling glum on a monsoon day? Set it right with mouth-watering Pyazi! A traditional Bengali snack, the Pyazi is deep-fried onion bhajiya with a touch of kalanji.
This recipe here comes with a healthy twist. The same irresistible taste and aroma is achieved by cooking the Pyazi in a healthy way using just a teaspoon of oil.
It requires a bit of tact to tava-cook such snacks, but once you get the hang of it you can cook many of your favourite foods in a healthy way. Serve the Pyazi hot and fresh with green chutney.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and mix well.
- Add approx. 3 tbsp of water and mix it very well using your hands.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it with ½ tsp of oil.
- Take a portion of the mixture, place it on a wet palm and lightly flatten it.
- Transfer the pyazi on the fingers of the other hand and carefully place it on the greased tava (griddle).
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 to make 14 more pyazis.
- Cook all the pyazis on a medium flame using ½ tsp of oil till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
- Serve immediately with healthy green chutney.
