How to make Mirchi Wada

  1. In a pan put oil, mustard seeds, curry leaves and let it crackle. Add ginger and garlic. Cook for a minute and add salt turmeric powder. Now put potatoes, lemon juice and coriander. Mix well and let it cool.
  2. Put the potato stuffing in the green chillies. Make sure you do not overfill the chillies else they will break while frying.
  3. In a big sized bowl, add gram flour, salt, turmeric powder and baking soda. Mix well and form a thick batter by adding a little water each time.
  4. In a wok put oil for deep frying, keep it on a medium flame.
  5. Take 1 green chilli at a time and dip it well in the batter so that it is covered from all sides and slip it in the oil slowly. Fry till golden brown.
  6. Take it out and keep it on a tissue to get rid of excess oil.
  7. Repeat the same process with rest of the chillies. Serve hot.

My Tip:

Do not fry more than 2 chillies at a time . Make sure the batter is not runny or else it won't stick to the chillies.
