This recipe for bharwa mirchi does not call for any besan. This bharwa mirchi recipe has the very distinct flavor of garlic which makes it absolutely delish.

Bharwa Mirchi – Ingredients Required

Green Chilies: It is very important to use correct green chilies to make stuffed mirchi. It you use a very hot variety of green chilies; you will not be able to relish bharwa mirchi. Use mildly hot green chilies for the best results. Further, it is also important to cook the chilies properly. If you end up overcooking these you will have soggy stuffed mirchi.

Spices for Stuffing: Coriander seeds, dry red chilies, cumin seeds, garlic, red chili powder, salt, dry mango powder are some of the spices used to stuff the chilies. You can adjust the quantity of these spices as per your liking.

Spices for tempering: The panch phoron spices i.e. mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, onion seeds, and fenugreek seeds have been used to temper stuffed mirchi.

Oil for tempering: Mustard oil definitely works the best for this recipe. However, if you are new to mustard oil, make sure to smoke it well for a couple of minutes. Switch off the flame and proceed with the recipe. If the mustard oil remains undercooked, it overpowers the whole of the dish and the same is not very pleasant.

One of the most popular side dishes of Indian meals is chutney. There are plenty of chutneys prepared in Indian kitchens. However, the most popular chutney of North India is the hari chutney or coriander chutney. And here is my take on the same. Prepare it and freeze it, thaw and use to zing up your meals. Other than chutney I always have vinegar onions in my refrigerator. These go well with every meal and help to make it better.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
