Mirchi bhajji or mirchi pakoda or green chilli fritters

Mirchi or whole green chilli pakoras are a mouth watering, delicious street food in India.

They are so heavenly and you crave for it especially in winters and rainy season,

Green chillies: 10-15
Chickpea flour or besan flour or chana flour: 2 cups
Rice flour: 1/2 cup
Baking soda: 1/4 teaspoon
Salt: 1 and half teaspoon
Red chilli powder:1/2 teaspoon
Garlic: 4 cloves
Cardamom: 2
Cumin seeds:1 tablespoon
Ajwain or  carom seeds: 1 teaspoon

De seed green chillies and slit them in the middle and put a pinch of salt inside the slit of the chilli and deep fry them in the oil and drain them on a paper towel.

If you want it more spicy you don't need to deep fry them before you dip them in batter,just put salt inside the slit and leave them aside.

Grind garlic cloves(peeled), cloves,cumin,cardamom to fine paste and keep it aside.

Now sieve rice and chana flour and add salt,red chilli powder,ajwain seeds,baking soda and mix it well.

Now add above grounded paste to this flour mix and add little water to make a semi thick batter consistency.

Now dip these deep fried chillies(like I did today),in the batter and deep fry them until golden brown.

Now serve them hot with finely chopped onions,coriander and a dash of lime and chaat masala on top or inside the slit,trust me they taste so good.

Happy cooking😊😊

Note: when dipping in batter put your thumb finger in the slit of the chilli and dip it in the batter and coat whole chilli with batter but not inside the slit and put it in the oil the same way.

This way inside of the green chilli is cooked as well rather than just the batter,and they turn out crispy as well.
