My mother in law just loves the Mirchi Bada I make…a stuffing of spiced potatoes into the mirchi and coated with besan batter and shallow fried….Serves her purpose for a spicy , less oily treat!!Looking at the fresh green Jalepenos just reminds me of her!! But today I decided to try a different version of recipe!! Just so that I can surprise her with it when she visits us next time!! She’s a foodie just like me and a mighty good cook!! All my maratha and Khandeshi recipes come from her!! So a yet another spicy , flavourful treat for my mom in law and ofcourse my husband. I call it Bhavnagri Mirch ,for 2 reasons…1 the Chilly used is called Bhavnagri Mirch , and 2, I have used Bhavnagri Sev or gathia in the stuffing… Its a unique recipe, worth a try. Can be served with a Kadhi or can be had deep fried as a snack as well!  



  1. Slit the Bhavnagri mirch and deseed them.Apply some salt inside the chilly and set aside. Make a thick batter with besan,salt, soda bicarb and turmeric and water and keep aside
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Add onion and saute till brown..Add the roasted besan,dry coconut,peanuts and ghathia sev and mix. Now add red chilly powder,turmeric,coriander powder,garam masala,salt ,jaggery and Tamarind. Cool the mix
  3. Stuff the slit chillies with the gathia mix and press close.
  4. Cover the slit opening of the stuffed chilly with the batter and shallow fry them on a low flame till cooked Serve with chapatis and Kadhi. This stuffing can also be used for making bharwan karela.
