For the filling:

For the batter:


  1. Prepare the filling:
    • Slit the green chilies lengthwise, ensuring they remain intact.
    • Remove the seeds and inner membrane, if you prefer milder heat.
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, salt, and chopped coriander leaves.
    • Mix well until all the spices are evenly incorporated into the potato mixture.
  2. Stuff the green chilies:
    • Gently stuff the prepared potato mixture into the slit green chilies.
    • Ensure the filling is evenly distributed throughout the chili.
  3. Prepare the batter:
    • In a separate bowl, combine chickpea flour, turmeric powder, red chili powder, baking soda, and salt.
    • Gradually add water to make a smooth and thick batter.
    • Ensure the batter is not too runny, as it should coat the chilies well.
  4. Deep-frying the Mirchi Vada:
    • Heat oil in a deep pan or kadhai over medium heat.
    • Dip each stuffed chili into the batter, ensuring it is coated well on all sides.
    • Gently place the coated chili into the hot oil.
    • Fry until the Mirchi Vada turns golden brown and crispy. Flip it occasionally for even cooking.
    • Once fried, remove the Mirchi Vada from the oil and place it on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  5. Serving:
