ABOUT Bhavnagri Mirchi RECIPE

Bhavnagri mirchi are stuffed with gram flour and dry masalas. Its very famous in Gujarat, Maharashtra and Rajasthan. This Mirchi is not at all bitter or teekhi in taste,these are mild and tangy. The flavor of  roasted gram flour is really different as it gives a crunch in every bite and the most important is that they are not deep fried. You can have this Mirchi with Paranthas as well it goes specially with Arhar ki daal and Rice.
