Monsoon is incomplete without some garma garam Pakoras, served with a hot cup of tea and freshly made chutney. That’s what makes this Rajasthani Mirchi Vada/Bhajji so hard to resist. It’s a tasty snack that has green chilies stuffed with masala filling, coated with batter. Fry it to perfection and enjoy the crunch!


    For Filling
    7-8 green chili big size
    300 g boiled mashed potatoes
    1 tsp Red chili powder
    Salt to taste
    1 tsp coriander powder
    1 tsp garam masala powder
    1/4 tsp ajwain (Carrom seeds)
    Finely chopped ginger
    1 tsp chaat masala
    For Batter
    250 gm besan
    Salt to taste
    1 tsp Red chili powder
    1 pinch turmeric powder
    Oil for deep frying


Slit the chilies and take out the seeds.
Keep them aside. Take a clean bowl, toss in boiled potatoes with red chili powder, salt, coriander powder, garam masala powder, carom seeds, finely chopped ginger and chaat masala.
Mix them well and stuff the green chilies.
Make a thick paste with Besan and with a pinch of turmeric powder, 1 tsp red chili powder and salt to the taste.
