Fire down the throat – Stuffed chili fritters/ pakoda

Pakodas, in any form, type πŸ˜‰ are favorite of every India. There exits no vegetable of which we cannot make pakodas/fritters πŸ˜›

This one of my favorite food which i serve whenever me and my girlies meet πŸ˜€

The gossiping gets yummier and spicier with these around πŸ˜‰

Served with cups of masala tea…..ooh la la ❀ , a piece of heaven πŸ˜€

Though today was no girlie meet, but school re-opens tomorrow and i will carry these for them. Aahh !! i can visualize their expressions when they see this πŸ˜‰

stuffed chilies

This will spice our first working day tomorrow and the days to follow πŸ˜€

Its simple to make and since it’s deep fried, can’t call it healthy πŸ™‚

chili pakoda/ fritters

Here’s what i did ……


8 nos – moderately hot large variety green chili

For the filling :

2 nos – boiled potato

1/2 tsp – roasted cumin seed powder

1/4 tsp – dried raw mango powder ( amchoor)

1 no – small onion ( finely chopped and sauteed)

1/4 tsp – kashmiri red chili powder

salt to taste

For the batter :

5 tbsp – besan/ split bengal gram powder

1 tbsp – rice powder

pinch of salt

pinch of carom seeds

Oil to deep fry


Wash and wipe the chilies. Cut a slit lengthwise – stem end to the tip. Make sure not to cut through the other side. To reduce the heat, de-seed the chilies.

Peel the potatoes and add all the spice and sauteed onions. Mash roughly. Stuff the chilies. Keep aside.

For the batter mix the split bengal gram powder and rice powder. Add the salt and carom seed. Add water and make a thick paste. Keep it aside for 10 mins.

Heat oil in a wok. Dip the stuffed chili in the batter, make sure it’s coated well. Fry 2 -3 chili at a time for even frying to golden in color.

Serve hot with coriander chutney or tomato ketchup……and to add some Β zing, serve some barbeque sauce πŸ˜‰

Happy cooking !!!

Cheers πŸ˜€

    Omg. My husband will love it. I can’t touch spicy food. I am panicking looking at the green chili. My family has failed miserably trying to make me eat one of these. Never knew we could make it at home. Can’t wait to show this post to my husband
