Indian Style Jalapeno Stuffed Cheese Fritters/ Stuffed Mirchi Pakoda/Bajji Recipe

Steps


  • Mix all the dry ingredients gram flour, rice flour, COSMOS HALDI POWDER, salt and add water to make a thick batter.


  • Make a slit in the jalapenos from top to bottom taking care not to break them in two. Remove the seeds and veins to tone down the spice level.


  • In a bowl take cheese, diced onions, mozzarella, soya granules, chilli flakes, salt - mix everything and stuff this mixture in jalapenos.


  • Dip them in a batter in a nice even coat and deep fry on a medium flame till it becomes golden brown and crisp.


  • Take out sprinkle with chat masala and serve hot.



Tips:

  1. Never use cooking soda in a batter for crispy texture, or else the batter will leave a thin watery type texture, we need a thick batter to coat properly.  To make it more crispier add one spoon of hot oil into the batter. Rest rice flour will do their best to make your fritters crispy.

  2. After taking out when done frying, do not store immediately when hot, it will leave soggy. First let it cool completely before storing.
