Mirchai Pakoda Chutne-a mei

BM # 5   Day 7

During summers I feel I am in a furnace and just don’t feel like eating anything hot…coolers ,salads are on a hot list…among these cant miss out on chats and preparations with chilled curd.This time have decided to post a Sindhi preparation which is chilled and satisfying to the taste buds.
Mirchai pakoda … chilly fritters..chutnea today I shall share this recipe of chilly pakodas which are not hot…..not at all. Merged with curd and sweet imli chutney ..chilled to the core they are an absolute relish for summers.

Big green chillies

 Salt to taste
Pinch soda

Beaten curd

Chaat masala
Red chilly pwd
Roasted jeera pwd
Black salt

Boil water in a pan.
Slit the green chillies.
Immerse them in this water adding salt and some sugar(I used about 1tbsp)
The sugar takes away the little spice the chillies have.
Boil for 2-3 minutes.
Drain in a colander.Cool.

Using besan and water make a batter for pakodas.
Add pinch soda bi carb and salt.
Fry pakodas in hot oil till golden brown.
Cut into pieces discarding the stalk.
Arrange on the serving platter.
Add salt to beaten curd.
Pour the curd on these pakoda pieces.
Garnish with all spices.
Drizzle Shahi Imli Sonth or sweet imli chutney.
Add some coriander…n mint too if you like.
Chill and serve.
