Among the savoury snacks of south india, the most cherished is mirchi bajji, stuffed chilli pakodas which are deep fried in batter of gram flour. Nothing to beat that I beleive followed by onion pakodas. A plate of murmura with these fried snacks, was the most enjoyable  pasttime for us during college days , nostalgic memories flooding with this here !


  • green chillies 1/2 kg
  • gram flour 2 cups
  • rice flour 1tbsp
  • red chilly powder 1tsp
  • ajwain 1/2tsp
  • salt to taste
  • split dalia 2tbsp
  • salt
  • asafoetida a pinch
  • oil for frying



  • Wash the green chilly. Pat dry.
  • Make an incision in the middle and remove the seeds. Take care, not to break open.
