About this Recipe

"Piaji" that is what we call it in local language. It's a perfect evening snack to go with a glass of Nimbu Chai .My sister always demands whenever she is at Mom's place. After marriage she became an expert cook too :) These fritters were must when friends at home on weekend evenings... Chai ,Pakoda and a long chitchat !! And there was always a scuffle for the last piece in the plate . Missed those days...
