Quick jump:

Ingredients

  • Green chillies: we need big green chilli or jalapeños or bhavnagiri which are less spicier and have less seeds as well. these green chillies are easily available in local vegetable market.
  • Gram flour mixture: besan or chickpea flour, spices for seasoning, water and lemon juice. lemon juice makes the chilli fritters extra fluffy.
  • Potato mixture: Boiled mashed potatoes, crushed fennel seeds, coriander seeds, seasoning, grated ginger and green chilli.
  • Other: Refined oil or canola oil for frying the vada.

How to make mirchi vada

Besan batter:

Add chickpea flour or besan in the bowl then add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, amchur powder or dry mango powder and water. mix it well and if required add more water.

The batter should have pouring consistency, it should neither be thick or thin. when the flour is mixed nicely then add lemon juice in it and mix it well.

Lemon juice helps to make the mirchi vada extra fluffy. It is a better option than baking soda and does the same work.

Potato stuffing:

In the bowl add boiled mashed potatoes then add chopped green chilli, chopped coriander leaves, grated ginger or minced ginger, carrom seeds, crushed fennel seeds and coriander seeds, salt, red chilli powder and dried mango powder.

Mix it well.

Stuffing and frying:

Wash and dry the green chilli, slit it from one side. remove all the seeds and stuff it with the mashed potato mixture.

Dip the stuffed green chilli in the besan batter and fry it in medium hot oil. you can fry 3 stuffed chilli at once.

Fry it from both the sides by flipping it when one side is golden brown. when it is golden brown transfer it to a tissue paper or paper towel.

Repeat the same process for rest of the stuffed green chilli.

Serve it with dhaniya chutney or roasted tomato chutney with bread or pav and chai.
