  • 20 Carom leaves Vaamu Akulu / Ajwain leaves

  • 1 pinch Baking soda
  • Salt as per taste
  • Water as required
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Pluck big sized carom leaves along with the stem from your garden and wash them in running water to remove the dust. Then pat dry them.
  • Take a pan, heat oil to fry.
  • In the meanwhile, sift the chickpea flour, baking soda, salt together. Then transfer this into a bowl and mix it well. Slowly pour water into this mixture and prepare a thick and smooth batter without any lumps.
  • Dip the carom leaves one by one into this batter and coat them with thick batter on both sides.
  • Carefully fry these coated carom leaves in oil over medium flame until they turn golden brown on both sides.
  • Transfer the bajjilu into a plate and serve them hot with sauce/chutney.


  • You may add red chilli powder to the batter. I did not prefer it as it changes color.
