These Scallop Bhaji morsels are very Indian in spirit, and are a great starter to a more elaborate Indian feast, or on their own as a delicious snack
Chillies, Deep-fry, Scallops, Turmeric
diced Scallop meat
slivered Red Bell Pepper
slivered fresh Green Chili
coarsely ground dried Red Chili.
Mix together the flour and egg-white, and just enough water to make a thick batter
Stir in the seasonings followed by the main ingredients and allow the mixture to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes
When ready to cook, heat your deep-fry oil over a moderate high flame.
Add heaped tablespoons of your batter mix to the oil a few at a time and fry for a minute or two, removing each Bhaji to a paper-towel lined platter as it becomes lightly golden.
After you have completed the initial frying of all the Bhaji, add them all back into the oil for a second frying to get them nicely crispy.
Drain once again on paper towels to remove excess oil and then serve while still hot along with a dipping sauce or chutney of your choice
