How to make STUFFED BAJJI MIRCHI GRAVY / MIRCHI SALAN

  1. Saute the grinding ingredients after frying in a tsp of oil and grind to fine paste.
  2. Clean and slit open the mirchi chillies and remove the seeds.
  3. Boil and mash the potatoes , then mix the potato with our stuffing ingredients ( chillipowder , chopped onions , garam masala , cumin powder and salt).
  4. Now stuff the slitted chill with the mixed potato and close the chillies (as in picture).
  5. In a bowl mix all purpose flour , chilli powder , chillichicken powder , cornflour mix and salt and add ¼ cup water and mix to form idli batter consistency ( you can even skip this step , we like the chewy texture in chillies so I did it ..
  6. Dip each of the stuffed chilli in above batter and deep fry in oil till golden brown , drain the oil and keep aside.
  7. in a pan add 1 tsp of oil followed by onions , curry leaves and fry till translucent.
  8. When onions are done add tomatoes and fry till mushy , followed by turmeric powder , coriander powder and sauté once.
  9. Now add the ground masala and boil for 5 mins till the gravy reaches required consistency.
  10. When your gravy is ready finally add the fried chillies and garnish with coriander leaves and give a quick mix and serve
  11. The gravy goes best with dosa and chapathis too.

My Tip:

After adding chillies to gravy don’t boil the gravy .as already everything is boiled and fried just add the chillies and serve. 2) As my Chillies are very long I cutted them into pieces and added to gravy , you can add as it is. 3) If you want the gravy to be very simple , you can just fry the chillies in oil without even stuffing and add to gravy.
