CHILLY FRITTERS

Bhajji molaga nothing but chilly fritters is the most popular snack in Tamil nadu. I love spicy food so no doubt, it comes under the list of my favourites. Once when I was shopping, my eyes stared upon green shining chillies. Not in a second I packed those thinking it would be a perfect snack on sundays on a rainy season. Waa hot hot 'Bhajji Molaga'' on a rainy day. Sounds great right?
And guys one interesting tip to share. ie if the deseeded chillies are being soaked in vinegar water, its helps reduce its heat. And later we could taste a slight tangy flavour of vinegar which really tastes delicious. That really helps to do so. So whenever you try making chilli fritters, do try using this method.


INGREDIENTS.

10 Chillies.

1 1/2 Cup Besan.

2 tbsp Chilli powder.

Pinch of Soda.

Pinch of Hing.

1 tbsp Vinegar.

Water as per needed.

Salt to taste.

Oil for frying.

METHOD.

Make a long slit from top to bottom on each chilli. With the help of spoon remove few or all seeds to reduce the hot. ( I don't take them full ). Now in a water add vinegar and soak the deseeded chili for half an hour. Later drain them on a tissue paper separately.


Meanwhile prepare the besan batter adding enough water with salt, chilli powder,hing and soda.
The consistency should not be either thick nor thin.

Heat oil in a kadai. Dip each chilli into the batter and gently put them into oil. Fry for 2 to 3 min turning occasionally till golden brown.


Enjoy!!
