  • 8 Green chilli (big ones)
  • 1 cup Besan / Gram Flour / Chickpeas Flour
  • 1/4 cup Rice flour
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Red Chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying


  1. Run the chilies under water and dry the green chilies with a towel.

  2. Slit the green chilies from the center leaving the edges as shown in the above picture and remove the seeds.

  3. Add chickpeas flour, rice flour, baking soda, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt in a bowl.

  4. Add water little by little and make a smooth batter. The batter should not be runny so that they coat easily over the chilies.

  5. Heat oil in a pan over medium flame. Make sure to check if oil is ready. You can check by dropping a small ball of the dough in the hot oil and if it immediately comes on top, oil is ready.

  6. Dip green chilli in the the batter and deep fry them till they turn golden brown on both sides.. I chopped the green chillies into halves to fry them easily.

  7. Remove from the pan and drain the excess oil by placing them on a paper towel.
