Crisp green chilli pakodas stuffed with a potato filling make for a great monsoon snack. Sip on some chai and munch on these crunchy delights.





4 green chillies (moti mirch), slit and deseeded

Oil for deep frying

For the Batter:

1 cup besan/ gram flour

Cold water (colder the water, crispier the pakodas)

1/2 tsp garlic paste

1/2 tsp ginger paste

Salt to taste

For the Filling:

1 potato, boiled and mashed

Salt to taste

1/2 tsp zeera/ cumin

1/2 tsp garlic paste

1/2 tsp ginger paste

1/2 tsp sugar


In a bowl mix all the filling ingredients.

In another bowl mix all the batter ingredients. Adjust the water amount keeping the consistency medium-thick. Batter should not be too runny.

Fill the deseeded chillies with the prepared filling. Dip in the batter and deep fry till golden and crisp.

Serve with pudhina-dhania chutney or saunth.
