Onion/Potato Bajji

This is a snack essentially to please an unexpected guest and is quick to make. This is oil intensive since it absorbs more oil and is less frequently made due to health reasons these days. However if a guest is offered this item it sure will be  devoured gladly, which we shall when we ourselves turn up as guests elsewhere.
Chief items are onion and potatoes thinly sliced after the curvature is shaved off.
For the bajji batter:
2 cups                    Channa flour or gram flour
1 cup                      Rice flour
1 tsp                       Salt
1 tsp                       Red chilli powder
1/4 tsp                    Asafoetida
1 tsp                       Ghee
Mix all the above ingredients into paste like thick consistency. Heat oil to fry point in a fry pan. Dip the sliced potato and onion one at a time sufficient to cover with batter mix and drop in hot oil. Drp as many as the fry pot can take leaving room for turning over. Fry till golden brown turning over gradually as the bajjis cook. Remove from fried bajjis, strain excess oil or pat out in paper towel.
