Bharli Mirchi or Bharwan Mirch makes a perfect side dish to go along with everything,chapati,bhakri or even simple Dal rice.
This dish is very special to me as the recipe was shared with me by my late mother in law Mrs Nanda More who was a very loving Mom and an excellent cook….I so very much miss her and the lovely food made by her.
Here we use bhavnagri mirchi as it is not very spicy.
10 Bhavnagari Mirchi.
1/4 cup roasted Besan.
1/4 cup Finely chopped Coriander Leaves.
2 tbsp Sesame Seeds,lightly roasted.
1 tsp Red Chilli Powder.
2 tsp Dhana Jeera Powder.
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder.
1 tsp Sugar.
Juice of half Lemon.
Salt to taste
Oil for Shallow Frying.
Wash bhavnagari mirchis very well and pat them dry.
Make a slit through the mirchi and pull it apart.
Keeping the stem on.Apply little salt and keep aside.
Take all the ingredients except oil in a plate.
Mix them well.
Now stuff the prepared mixture in the slit mirchi,stuff all the mirchis.
Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan, line all stuffed chillies over oil on a pan.
Cover and allow it cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes open the cover and turn them around.
Fry mirchis till they get deep golden color from all the sides.
Remove on an absorbent paper and serve hot.
