Rajasthani Recipe -Mirchi Vada


Mirchi Vada or Jodhpuri Mirchi Bada

The first monsoon showers….with Mirchi Vada
In this recipe I tried to keep the butter or coating Fixture a little thin to make sure that the chili and the stuffing is fried properly in less oil and also added finely chopped onions in the stuffing mixture.


4 large Green Chillies/Jalapeños
4 medium potatoes, boiled
2 medium Onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoon Red Chilli powder
1 teaspoon Coriander Powder
1 teaspoon Chaat Masala Powder
1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup Gram Flour
Oil for frying



Slit green chillies and remove the seeds. Blanch in hot water.
Peel and grate boiled potatoes and add onions, red chili powder, garam masala powder, chaat masala, coriander powder and salt. Mash and mix well.
Divide this mixture into 4 equal portions.
Stuff a little of this mixture into the green chilies and also cover the chilies with this potato mixture.

Now make a thick batter using gram flour, baking powder, red chili powder, salt and about 1 cup of water. Keep the batter for about 10-15 minutes.


Heat oil in a deep frying pan/Kadhai to a moderate temperature. Dip stuffed green chilies into the gram flour batter and deep fry until golden brown.


Now its Serve hot with Green Coriander Chutney or Tangy Tomato Sauce & Tea.
