What is Bhajji and Pakora?

Bhajji and Pakora are similar appetizers using Besan batter and deep fried.
 

Bhajji

Bhajji is a Marathi word. A thick batter of chickpea flour and spices is prepared. Chopped up vegetables are stirred in. The contents are scooped up by a spoon, put on a griddle in the shape of a patty, and with some oil till brown on both sides.

It is confused with Pakora because of chickpea flour. Also sometimes, they are deep fried and then pressed into patties and then re-fried before serving.
