Mirchi Bajji

It was -12 degree celsius today and I was craving for something hot and spicy. So I decided to try my hand at Mirchi bajji, one of my favorite snacks.
1. Besan - 1 cup
2. Rice Flour - 1/4 cup

3. Baking Soda - A pinch
4. Salt
5. Tamarind paste
6. Cumin Seeds
7. Coriander powder
8. Green Chillies
9. Ajwain Seeds (Vaamu)
10. Onion and Lemon

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cook Time : 15 mins

1. Mix the besan rice flour, baking soda and a spoon of salt with some water, till the mixture attains a milk consistency.

2. Now, take the green chillies, make a slit along the length, leaving the top and bottom closed. Remove the seeds in the chili. (Removing seeds is difficult than I thought)

3. Now let us make the stuffing. Take one spoon of cumin seeds, coriander powder, ajwain seeds, tamarind paste. Also add salt for taste and make a powder out of them using a blender.

4. Now stuff the chilis with this mixture .

5. Take a kadai and fill it with oil till half the volume. Heat the oil.

6. Take the stuffed chili's one by one and dip them in the batter and drop them in the oil gently.

7. Fry till golden brown and remove onto a plate.

Mince some onions. Add some salt and red chili powder and sprinkle some lemon juice. Serve along side bajjis.
