Mirchi Bajji – a very famous street food which makes me very nostalgic! Only very few recipes bring back our lovely moments and makes us smile all alone. And these fried ones are in my nostalgic list! This is my most favorite one so I make sure that I do not miss them whenever we go to the beach. Sitting in the beach sand facing a lovely sunset n waves with our favorite people around holding a plate full of Hot bajji’s with watery chutney which runs around the plate…. just chatting n munching… Really those are Lovely days with no tension…no fear about future. And those days will never come back and am sure that everyone had some nostalgic moments like me….especially beach bajji’sJ
I got a chance to taste the most yummy mirchi bajji’s with the perfect delicious chutney some months back in Kerala. It’s THE BEST in my terminology and that’s the best mirchi bajji that I ever tasted in my life… The chutney which they serve has lots of finely chopped garlic and ginger with the tangy spicy flavor. Mainly the chutney is thick and very very spicy. Imagine hot mirchi bajji with spicy chutney!!!! Tempting right…uff I have already started drooling… he he ;)
Missing all those spicy nostalgic moments!!!
And coming to my today’s recipe…. I tried this recipe couple of months back for a completion conducted by lekhafoods.com. I was shortlisted but was unlucky to get into the final list to win a Samsung phone.
Stuffing cheese and olives in mirchi completely turned it to an Italian style… Fusion MirchiJ . And the taste was truly divine which made my hubby who is not fond of mirchi to gulp 3 stuffed mirchis ! Happy J
Served these fried ones with sweet chilli sauce to balance the taste.
