Pappu Mirapakaya Bajji(Lentil Stuffed Peppers)

Pappu Mirapayaka Bajji a very traditional dish,My Hubby's grandma used to make this but she used to make it with urad dal batter with which we make Vada.He used to tell me about this but I never understood how dat would taste as I never had or seen it before,but 1 day I saw it in a TV show but thie recipe is with different stuffing.It tasted yummy..I really njoyed the taste of
the deep fried stuffed mirchi with another tangy dish Semiya Pulihora.Here goes the recipe...
Big Mirchi:9 no
Chenna Dal:2 spns
Moong Dal:2 spns
Onion:1/2(finely chopped)
Chopped Cliantro:3 spns
Salt:To Taste
Cumin Seed:1 spn
Lemon Juice:2 spn(Else u can use 1/2 spn of Amchur Powder)
Garam Masala Powder:1/4 spn
Oil:For Deep frying
1.Soak the chenna dal n Moong dal for 2 hours and then blend it to a coarse paste.
2.Mix all the above ingridents (expect Oil for deep frying) in Chenna Dal n Moong Dal mixture.
3.Now slit the mirchi and remove the seeds from the mirchi. 4.Stuff the dal mixture in the mirchi and put aside.
5.Heat oil for deep frying and when hot fry the lentil stuffed mirchi till they turn to golden brown color.When done put them on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
6.Serve it hot with onion n lemon.
U can have it directly as a snack or can be served as a side dish.
I served this as a side dish with Semiya Pulihora this is an idea from one of my good friend Mrs.ArchanaRaja.
She serves Pulihora with Mirchi bajji so I too tried this n loved the taste.Thank U Archana :)
I wanted to share this recipe for a event in Simple Indian Food-An Easy cooking blog.

Hope u all like this traditional n easy recipe..
