Millet Mirchi Bajji /Fried Fritters

Mirchi bajji is famous fried fritters these days. Mirchi bajji goes well with a cup of coffee/chai or any other fruit juice.

I have tried this Mirchi bajji using millet flour, besan /channa dal flour, curry leaves chutney powder and other spices. Just wanted to try this fritter with millet flour and it has turned nicely with crispy and soft texture. It has a good taste and of course it is a good choice for having with lunch as a bite by the side.

Careful while you prepare the batter. Let the batter be medium thick. Adding any spice is optional. Curry leaves chutney powder adds to the taste. Adding more chilly powder is optional.
Fry on medium flame so that it cooks well and chilly turns crunchy.
I have the big chilly into two. So that it is easy to fry. No cooking soda is used here.
