My favorite combination of வாழைக்காய் பஜ்ஜீ ( Vaalakaai bajji) and Fish kolambu. Vaalakai bajji is a South Indian snack made with raw banana dipped in spiced flour and fried. It is usually eaten with coconut or chilli chutney. But this combo of fish kolambu accompaniment is my favorite, a discovery that goes way back to my college hostel days. A small eatery outside the college run by a local guy Kamaraj was famous with students for lunch. His fish kolambu was also yum. He soon started making bajji as evening snack for students. I started asking for the left over fish kolambu from his lunch time instead of the watery chutney. It became an instant hit with many still remains my favorite lip smacking snack combo!
