Milagai Bajji / Chili fritters was a common snack in south India. This was a chili pepper used to make fritters which has less spice level than others.
I like to have these fritters during rainy day with a cup of hot tea. I had already posted milagai bajji , this is a masala stuffed bajji.
As the stuffing inside the chili is made of potato with assorted masala with the crunchy chilli pepper and the beasan coating outside makes the bajji so delicious…………..
Bajji Millagai / Jalpaenos – 4 – 5
Potato – 1 large
Ginger garlic paste – ¼ tsp
Chopped onion – 2 tbs
Red chilli powder – ¼ tsp
Garam masala – ¼ tsp
Besan / Gram flour - 2 cup
Baking soda – a pinch
Salt as required
Cook the potato , peel skin and mash.
Heat a teaspoon of oil , add in onion and G-G paste, sauté well.
Add in the mashed potato and mix once.
Now , add the masala and required salt.
Let the stuffing cool.
Wash the jalpaenos and make a slit on oneside , don’t cut fully.
Stuff a spoon of stuffing in each jalpaeno.
Mix the gram flour , baking soda , salt, 1/8 tsp of chili powder and half cup of water to a thick batter.
Heat oil in a frying pan , dip each stuffed jalpaeno in the batter and deep fry till golden brown.
Stuffed chili fritters are ready to serve.
Coconut chutney will be a best accompaniment.
I love to have without any dip.
The seeds of jalpeaeno can be removed to prevent excess spicness.
