i am a huge fan of chilli recipes, and i always make sure to have some extra green chillies or banana peppers in my fridge for some lip-smacking recipe. my personal favourite is stuffed mirchi-bajji with spiced capsicum and potato stuffing. but i wanted to share a plain chilli bajji without any stuffing as it is more appreciated than the former one. basically, i have tried to share an authentic street style variation without any extra spice added to the batter. some prefer to add garam masala, chilli powder or even chaat masala to the besan batter. but i have skipped it and added just ajwain and salt as it is done by street vendors. basically, it does not require any other spice as the chilli or banana pepper has the required zing or spice for this recipe.

furthermore, some important and critical tips and recommendations while preparing the north karnataka style mirchi bajji recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have deseeded the chillies before dipping it in the besan batter. this is very important to lower the temperature of chillies. but if you are comfortable with the spice level, then go ahead and leave it as it is. secondly, the besan batter has to be thick like idli batter and should not be watery. thick besan batter would yield a fluffy mirchi bajji after deep frying. lastly, some prefer to stuff it with finely chopped onions just before serving. it is popular in andhra variation. i have skipped it but if you like to experiment, you can add it.
