Mirchi Bajji (Mirchi Ka Pakora)

Hi Friends ....
  Rain , Rain come again we all want to have mirchi ka pakora along with the eilaichi tea ....Yummy.
Mouthwatering na ???
Mirchi Bada is very famous in Rajasthan.......but in Southern India it is known as Mirchi Bajji.
It is the famous starter or an appetizer to start with ........
In Rajasthan, they serve this specially in thali during festive time.... It is prepared with mirchi, potatoes and gramflour....But I made it in simple way :-) Lazy me !!!
So here is the simple and easy recipe for you all......enjoy 



Ingredients 
7-8 long green chilies
2 tbsp amchoor powder (dry mango powder)
1 tbsp salt
Besan batter
1 cup besan (chickpea flour)
1/4 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander
1/4 tsp ajwain seeds (carom seeds)
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4  tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp amchoor powder
1/4 tsp red chilly powder (optional)
Salt according to taste
Water to make batter
Oil for deep frying

Method:

  1. Wash and pat dry the chilies. Slit them from one side, remove the seeds (optional) with the help of knife.
  2. After removing the seeds, keep them aside.
  3. Mix amchoor powder and salt. Now fill little bit of this amchoor mixture in each chilly. Fill all the chilies one by one and keep them aside.
  4. Now make the batter, take a bowl add besan, ginger-garlic paste, fresh coriander and all the dry masalas.
  5. Add water and make semi-thick batter (batter consistency should not be watery, it should be thick enough to cover the chilies.)
  6. Heat oil in a kadhai (to check whether oil is hot just put one drop of batter into the oil, if it floats on the top of the oil immediately then its ready for frying)
  7. Dip each chilly into the batter, make sure the batter coats the chilly on all the sides.
  8. Carefully  drop it into the oil and deep fry it till golden brown.
  9. Repeat the same procedure with other chilies too.
  10. Remove them on an absorbent paper.
  11. Sprinkle chaat masala on top and serve hot with green chutney.
  12. Enjoy :-)
