Andhra Style Stuffed Mirch – Spicy side dish with baji chilli and ground peanut stuffing. This is an Andhra style side dish. We used to prepare only Bajji with this Chilli. I got this recipe from my Andhra friend and I used to experiment her dishes at home. Compared to Kerala cuisine Andhra dishes are more spicy. This stuffed chilli is very easy to prepare and goes well with chapati, rice etc… I have used ground peanut for stuffing, you can use any stuffing like ground roasted gram or potatoes. Hope you all will try out this spicy stuffed mirch.
How to make Andhra Style Stuffed Mirch?
5 Bajji Chilli
2 tbsp. of peanuts/nilakkadala(roasted and skinned)
1/4 spn. of cumin seeds/jeerakam
1 no of chopped onion
1 no of garlic
1 small piece of tamarind/puli
1/8 spn. of chilli powder(optional)
1/6 spn. of asafoetida/kayam
Salt to taste
2 spn. of oil
Wash bajji chilli properly. Make a slit on chillies and remove the seeds(I didn’t remove seeds. If you don’t want to make it spicier, you can remove it).
Coarsely grind peanuts, cumin seeds, onion, garlic, asafoetida and salt.
Fill the stuffing through the slit. Press well with hands and fill tightly.
Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the chillies on both sides till golden colour. Always shallow fry the stuffed side first.
Serve hot with chapathi,roti or rice
