My favorite fried food indulgence

public and private food in America has become eatable, here and there extremely good only fried potatoes go unchanged deadly as before,–Luigi Brazing

How true, this is a universal truth

Like Boswell observes in Life–some people have a foolish way of not minding or pretending not mind, what they eat. For my part I mind my belly studiously and very carefully for I look it that a person who does not mind his belly will hardly minds anything else.

Yet it is the French fries that still tingle the palate.

The Indian palate finds its equivalent in Aloo Tikki. This if eaten on streets of Delhi is great indulgence.

But otherwise I like my wada’s the deep-fried semolina wada or the all purpose flour wada called golibajje.

Semolina wada or the sajjige wade is great one and quick to make,

1 cup semolina

1/4 cup curd

Salt to taste

Pinch of asafoetida

1 onion finely chopped

tsp each of cumin seed, chopped curry leave and coriander leaves

1 tbsp of chopped nuts

Mix all the ingredients and deep fry.

Of course chutney’s of tamarind, or coconut could be great accompaniment, but for my daughters and me, it best when eaten with a good book in hand and a cup of coffee.
