Mirapakaya Bajji - Chilli Bajji

Its an art seeing my Athamma (mother-in-law) or my sis-in-laws make Mirapakaya Bajji. I have tried it many times, but have never quite got the same stuff.

This is wonderful combi for Uggani

Ingredients needed:

Green chillies - 10 (Long tender ones not with much seeds)
Gram flour - 1 cups
Cooking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying.

Method to prepere:

Wash the green chillies, make a slit on one side making sure that the stalk is intact. Scoop out the seeds using a knife.

If you are not able to get the tender chillies, then fry the chillies on hot pan till it becomes brown. Now it will not be so hot.

In bowl, mix cumin powder and salt. Stuff this mixture inside the slit green chillies.

Mix the gram flour with salt, soda and water. Make a thick batter.

Heat oil in a Kadai, dip the chillies one by one in the batter and deep fry them.

Remove them to a kitchen towel.
