Bherwa Mirch Ka Pakora | Stuffed Green Chili Fritters | How To Make Bherva Mirch Ka Pakora

Today I am sharing bherwa Mirch ka pakora recipe. This is stuffed green peppers with mashed potatoes filling with some aromatics spices, dipped in spicy besan (gram flour) batter and deep fried. While in the hostel we enjoyed these pakoras in Ganga dhaba. Later got to know that bherwa mirch pakora is a popular Rajasthani street food known as bherwa mirch vada too.
Bherwa mirch pakora means stuffed chilies fritters, we use green chilies also known as bhavnagri chilies which are larger in size but not too spicy. If you are serving to kids just deseed them before stuffing. These pakoras are also known as bhajji/bhajiya in Pune. These fritters can be served with green coriander chutney and tamarind chutney.
