Hyderabadi Mirchi Bajjis

After reading the post by Indira of Mahanandi on mirchi bajjis, I couldnt resist the temptation of trying out this famous snack from Hyderabad. I grabbed some long green chillies on the way back from work and waited for the weekend purely because heavy thunderstorms were predicted for Saturday. Is there a better food-weather combo? Watching the downpour (and of course the TV) tucked into a sofa with hot, spicy mirchi bajjis and garam chai….hmmm pure heaven!

I just modified the recipe a little bit. Instead of tamarind water, I added a tsp of aamchur and then made the paste adding water. I also added about 1/4th tsp of cumin seeds and flennel seeds, both ground,  with the stuffing. Though removing the seeds from the chillies involves a little bit of hard work, it was well worth the effort. Thanks Indira for the recipe!!

  2. Brought back memories of rainy season in Hyderabad! Not sure if it is the picture but I remember mirchi bajjis a little more brown…the ones shown in picture could use a little more time in oil.
