MIRCHI BAJJI

A excellent appetizer and an evening refreshment Mirchi Bhajji.Long green Chilli peppers with roasted and grounded peanut,cumin seeds and few more spices stuffed in.Since most of them use potatoes for filling,mine gives a distinct taste as I used peanuts.The peppers were too long,so I cut them into half size.


Ingredients:

Long Green Peppers 6

For Stuffing:

Crushed peanuts( roasted) 2 Tpa
Cumin seeds 1 1/2 Tsp
Dalia or split chick peas 3 Tsos
Asafeotida 1/2 Tsp
Coriander seeds 1/2 Tsp
Salt little.

For Coating or Batter

Gram Flour-1 cup
Rice powder-1/4 cup
Water-1/2 cup
Red Chilli powder 1/4 Tsp
Salt to taste

Oil for deep fry.

Method:

Grind all the spices for filling to coarse.




Partially slit the long green peppers and stuff the grinded spices just a 1/2 tsp.


Mix the gram flour and rice flour adding little quantity of water with red chilli powder and salt.The batter should be medium consistency.
Heat the oil on medium heat.Dip the stuffed long peppers into the batter for coating.
Deep fry them in the oil to crispy brown.
