Mirchi Pakora, Not For The Weak Tastebuds (Fried Green Chilis)



I don’t know what it is about these things, but whenever I make food for a party, I am always requested to make fried green chilis. And they always get eaten right up. Indians like spicy. I like spicy. But plain green chilis? I keep trying to eat one, but it always puts my mouth right on fire. There are different methods of frying green chilis (some have extra thick batter, some are stuffed, etc). This is just one way, and the simplest way I make snacks and appetizers for guests.


  • oil for frying
  • green chilis
  • 1/2 cup besan
  • water for making batter
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp red chili powder
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • chaat masala, for topping

To Make:

Heat oil on medium high to high heat. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Little by little, add water to make the consistency of pancake batter. Dip chilis in batter and fry. Drain on paper towel and sprinkle with chaat masala.

There you have it. I just added some spice to your life.
