About Piaji

"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...
