Marina Beach Milagai Bajji / Mirchi Bajji / Italian Peppers Bajji

For Stuffing
  • Oil - 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - a pinch
  • Turmeric Powder - 2 pinchs
  • Salt - as needed
  • Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
  • Besan Flour / Kadalai Maavu - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 1 cup

For Bajji Batter
  • Besan flour - 1 cup
  • Rice flour - 1/4 cup
  • Turmeric powder - a pinch
  • Chilli powder - 1 to 1.5 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/6th tsp
  • Salt - as needed
  • Milagai / Italian peppers - 5 to 6
  • Water - 1 cup

To make the Stuffing
  • In a kadai, add oil, and when hot add the mustard seeds.
  • When seeds splutter, add the Water and turmeric powder, salt and chilli powder.
  • When the water is boiling, slightly keep the flame in medium and add in the besan flour.
  • Stir well until there is no lumps formed.
  • Keep on stirring, until the oil comes out of the mixture, switch off and keep aside.

For Bajji Batter
  • Mix all the ingredients in the Bajji Batter and make a batter. It shoud be in a thick consistency like idli batter.
  • In a hot water, soak the peppers / milagai for 5 minutes in order to reduce the spiciness.
  • In another kadai / pan, add the oil and let it become hot.
  • Now make a slit in the peppers lengthwise and stuff the besan mixture.
  • Now immerse the stuffed peppers in to the batter and fry in the oil.
  • Filter the oil in a kitchen tissue paper and serve the bajji.

The taste will be very similar to the famous Milagai Bajji in Marina Beach because of the besan flour stuffing.

It probably is due to your oven being too hot. Or over mixing. Oven temperature is not the same as the dial shows. It varies. I would suggest you get an oven thermometer (4 dollars in walmart and target) and check the temperature. If you have been baking other stuff and they turn out to be fine, then the culprit is over mixed batter. Plus, make it a habit to tap the pan at least 10 times before placing in the oven to remove unwanted air bubbles. Hope this helps. Your mirchi bhaji looks awesome. I feel like eating one now.


OMG..that is way too tempting..send me some Akila :))
