Am I the only one who dreams about crispy and spicy snack? I translated my craving to these “Stuffed red chilli fritters” or “Mirchi Pakoda | Bhajiya”, when I recently went to grocery store and found these perfect yummy red chillies. Seeing these chillies, I got immediately tempted and bought them, only to translate these into a scrumptious snack for my evening tea.
Do you find these fritters as delicious as I am seeing? Don’t you think it’s the right kind of snack for any day? If you have never tried these before, you must do a favour to yourself and give it a go!
These are not difficult to make either. Check the ingredients list and you will see it only needs the basic ingredients you will normally find in your pantry.
The key to this recipe is to choose right kind of chillies.
- Chilli should be thick enough so that you can put in the stuffing.
- Careful that the chilli is not too spicy (find one which matches your taste buds). I have chosen these red ones, and these are less spicy.
Other than chillies, potato masala is another important element of this recipe. A well prepared stuffing adds to the taste.
Lastly, you need to dip these chillies one by one into batter made of Gram flour, and deep fry on low to medium heat, just enough to make sure outer layer is cooked to golden perfection.
Best served hot with Mint Coriander chutney.
