Hey! I had different types of bhajji but never a meen bhajji.

This sounds interesting.

Meen bhajji is one of our favourites too;
though we do it at home, I'm a die-hard fan of the bhajjis of a road vendor , back in India, she makes excellent bhajjis too!!! If we don't point out before 7 PM, everything she has (raw plantain, prawns, eggs and meat) is already over....

you've got them perfect, nicely browned and crispy!!!!
