Dudhi bhajiya

Dudhi na bhajiya is similar to my all-time favorite onion bonda (flitter). It made with dudhi (lauki), onions, besan, rice flour, and regular spices. They are crispy from the outside while soft from the inside. I also share sweet and spicy chutney recipes to serve with bhajiya. It is a delicious starter or evening snack and it goes great during the cold winter or rainy season with a cup of hot tea! They are quick and easy to make. Do try this!
