Omavalli Bajji / Karpooravalli Bajji / Aromatic Fritters

             Karpooravalli as we call in tamil  is also known as omavalli in our place. It is called as Cuban oregano.

      This herb can be easily grown in pot. We have our own plant in our garden. I mostly pluck and make this bajji frequently.

       This has the health benefit of relieving common cold and sore throat.
Ingredients :
Oregano / Karpooravali leaves – 15 – 20
Besan ( chickpea flour ) – 1 cup
Rice flour – ¼ cup
Chilli powder – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Asafoetida ( Hing ) a pinch
Cooking soda – a pinch ( optional )
Oil for frying

Method :
I used freshly plucked leaves.
Wash in running water.
In a bowl , mix  besan flour , rice flour , salt , chilli powder , asafoetida  and mix well. If using cooking soda add in this stage. We won’t use soda.
Add required water to make batter to bajji batter consistency.
Heat oil in a kadai , dip each leaf in the batter and fry till golden brown.

Aromatic fritters is ready to serve.
