Mirchi Bajji / long bell pepper fritters / மிளகாய் பஜ்ஜி


 
Simple spicy winter comfort food. I wont forget to pack this whenever we go for swimming / beach.

 
Ingredients:
  1. Mirchi  / long bell pepper - 10 nos
  2. Gram flour / Besan flour / Chickpea flour - 1 cup
  3. Rice flour - 6 tbs (optional) Rice flour gives a crispy coating
  4. Chilli powder - 2 tbs
  5. Food color (orange) - 1/2 tbs (optional)
  6. Hing /Asafoetida & baking powder - 2 pinch each
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Cooking oil for deep frying

 Method: 
  • Wash the bell peppers & cut them lengthwise into 2 equal halfs. Remove the seeds and keep it aside. If u r planning to taste the seeds too (it will be spicy), dont remove the stem portion and make few small slits with a sharp knife on every bell pepper. Otherwise mirchi ll pop while frying.
  • Prepare a smooth batter with ingredients 2 to 7 by slowly adding water.
  • Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
  • Dip the bell peppers one by one into the batter and gently drop from the sides of the pan for deep frying. Cook in medium flame, else the fritters ll get darken quick and the stuff inside may not be cooked. Once the bajji turns golden brown, serve hot with tomato ketch-up / fresh coconut chutney.
