masala mirchi bajji recipemasala mirchi bajji recipe | masala mirapakaya bajji | onion masala bajji with step by step photo and video recipe. mirchi bajji or chilli bajji is a common snack or street food across india. it is generally made with long green chillies, but can also be made with other types of chillies. one of the popular bajji variety from andhra cuisine is masala mirapakaya bajji, stuffed with masala onions and sev.

i have posted different variety with chilli bajji. basically my attempt is to cover all the variations across india. i have posted potato stuffed mirchi bajji and also the mirchi bada from rajasthan. i was getting requests to cover the andhra version too which is popularly known as masala mirapakaya bajji. basically, it follows the same procedure of a traditional besan batter based bajji, but has a spiced onion masala stuffing. in addition, i have added sev noodles topping to make it even tastier and lip-smacking. you may use any type of mixture or sev with it, but it is completely optional and you may even skip it as the traditional one is just with onion stuffing.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to masala mirchi bajji recipe. firstly, the chillies used for this recipe is very critical for this recipe. ensure to use longer and straight shaped chillies. this would help us eventually while slitting and more importantly during stuffing. secondly, if you observe closely with my video, the besan covering is partially covered or almost covered. in other words, do not fully cover the besan coating around the chilli, so that the chilli get in contact with hot oil and helps to cook. lastly, i have added baking soda to the besan batter just before deep-frying the chilli. do not add and rest the batter, otherwise, the strength of baking soda is reduced.
