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.

Nice twist to kaanda bhajiya is what I wld say. The uniqueness is the addition of kalonji instead of coriander seeds. Though loved this non fried version.
