Shrimp Fritters or Kardi chi Bhaji

Malvan region is known for its Sagari Meva or delicacies from the sea. The awesome and fresh fish inspire many chefs to come forward and make many types of curries/fish fry and fillets fry. As summer sets in, one gets lots of shrimps in the market. The fresh catch was so tempting that I could not resist. So here is my own version of Shrimp fritters or Kardi chi Bhaji. Enjoy the recipe and please do give credits if you use it somewhere for good old times.


Small shrimp (Kardi ) peeled – 250 gms 

Ginger Garlic Green chili paste – 2 Tbsp

Coriander leaves – 1/2 cup

Onions – 2 large

Turmeric – 1 tsp

Red chili powder -1tsp

Malvani Masala (optional) – 1 tsp

Garam Msala – 1tsp

Salt – Swaadanusaar

Lemon juice – 1Tbsp

Gram flour (besan) – 1 cup

Rice flour – 1/4th cup.

Egg white (optional for binding) – 1


1) Peel & clean about 500gms of Small shrimps or Kardi/Karandi (as called in Maharashtra & Goa)
2) Add all the masala, turmeric and salt first. Mix well and allow to rest for 15 mins.
3) Add fine chopped onion and mix well.
4) Add lime juice and the flours. Dont use any additional water. Knead gently to mix well.
5) Add 2 Tbsp hot oil gently to the mixture and knead slowly. This will bring crispiness to your fritters. Also they will absorb less oil while frying.
6) Heat Groundnut oil and deep fry fritters. Fry on low to medium flame so that they are cooked properly.
7) Remove them on kitchen tissue and let excess oil drip away. Serve hot with Pudina chutney. Relish your shrimp fritters and enjoy your evening.

Shrimp Fritters


  1. Adding lime Juice starts the process of cooking the fish. This ensures that you don’t eat anything undercooked in the process.
  2. Using Egg white is optional and only helps in further binding. Remember not to add the yolk.
  3. Using Hot oil in the mixture ensure better crispiness and also absorbs less oil while frying.
