Mirapakaya bajji recipe, Stuffed mirchi bajji, Chilli bajji

Mirapakaya bajji/ Chilli bajji/ Stuffed mirchi bajji is one such popular and much loved deep fried fritter prepared by frying potato/ aloo stuffed and batter coated chilli to perfection. This is a popular street food in Andhra and I am sure none of us (been to Andhra) have missed gobbling at least one piece and the same fritter in this post in homestyle.

We all are reminded of fritter during tea time/ winter season/ rainy season and since the weather is so perfect (cold now) it surely demands some of these yummy mirchi/ mirapakaya bajji along with some hot chai. I prepared these mirapakaya bajji/ chilli bajji with homegrown chilli so these were super yum and special too. This bajji is an enhancement to the regular chilli/ milagai bajji  and no rocket science (for beginners) just a potato filling to the regular mirchi along with some onion garnish makes all the difference. So let’s get to the making of stuffed mirchi bajji!!

  6. Dip the mirchi/ chilli slices in besan batter well and drop it oil it in preheated oil. Repeat the process until you finish the batter and mirchi/ chilli is over. Flip the bajji after it has puffed. When both sides are cooked remove from oil and transfer it to a plate and serve it hot by making a slit in the center garnished with chopped onion, carrot and chopped coriander/ cilantro.
