Mirchi fritters are quite famous street food in most of the Southern part of India, its a prefect evening snack and i love them specially while going to Pondicherry beach, the breeze and this hot milaga bajji together brings u out of this world..I prepared this mirchi fritters few days back using a simple tofu potato masala as filling and deepfried this mirchis using usual bajji batter...The tofu masala stuffed in this mirchis tasted truly fantastic and i felt its quite a fantastic way to sneak tofu, yep sometimes i have to make out different sort of dishes to satisfy the tastebuds of my picky eaters, but for my surprise this stuffed mirchi fritters, my teddies & my H finished once i served them for our evening snacks..Sending to Pj's Tasty Tofu Treats..

Meanwhile mix all the ingredients give in the list except the oil & chillies for fritters as thick batter with enough water..Heat the oil for deep frying..cut the chillies and discard the seeds, fill the chillies with the already prepared tofu masala..Dip the stuffed mirchis in the bajji batter, drop gently to the hot oil, fry on both sides until they turns golden brown..Drain the excess of oil with a paper towel..
