Mirchi Wada

This is a very famous dish from Jodhpur (Rajasthan ) and hardly needs any introduction. Nowadays the market is flooded with variety of peppers and I just couldnt resist buying the long green fresh looking bell peppers.

I wanted to make something spicy and deep fried and so decided on these Mirchi Wadas .

Even kids love these spicy but not so hot bhajias.

They will surely be a hit in your house and no one can stop eating just one .




Ingredients :

10 - 12 .......................long green peppers
5 to 6 .......................potatoes boiled
1 tbsp.......................fennel seeds (crushed) (badishep or saunf)
1/2 tbsp...................coriander seeds powder
1/2 tbsp....................chilly powder (according to your taste )
1 tbsp.......................dry mango powder (amchoor)
1 tsp ......................turmeric powder
2 cups ...................chana dal flour (besan)
salt
oil for deep frying



Method :

Make a batter with besan , water salt and turmeric which is not too thick or too thin.

Skin the potatoes and mash them properly.

Add to them crushed saunf, coriander powder, chilly powder, amchoor and salt.

Wash the peppers and slit them only on one side to fill it with the above mixture.

Keep the stalk of pepper intact if possible.

Dip these stuffed peppers in the besan mixture and deep fry in hot oil.

Serve with tomato ketchup or tamarind chutney.
