Bajji chilli / bajji milagai stuffed with a potato masala and made as bajji. Very delicious tea time snack.When we came here to Singapore, I used to make chilli bajji often, as we get bajji milagai in mustafa. Then really got bored of it and stopped buying. I wanted to try stuffed version of chilli bajji (stuffed chilli pakora, as this is popularly know by many). I once have tried making this but did not turned out proper. The chilli was not cooked at all. It was crunchy and no flavour/ taste in it.  So was not that eager to try again. Last time when I went for monthly groceries purchase, picked this pack of bajji chilli and thought of trying stuffed chilli bajji. So weekend I made this and even Aj had this one happily.

  • Always use spoon to scoop the seeds, if you use your fingers, then it will burn through out the day.
  • Make sure to spice and salt the stuffing properly. I have used smaller potatoes, so, make sure to adjust the spice or potato quantity.
  • Add red chilli powder as per your preference as chilli at times could be spicy too.
  • If the seeds are not taken out properly, it will be really spicy.

Cut into small pieces and serve hot with tomato sauce or green chutney. Can have it as such too, with tea or coffee. stuffed-milagai-bajji
