Mensinakai Bonda / Mirchi Bonda

This is my dad's favorite snack and when he was visiting us last year i couldnt make it for him. Today is father's day so made his favorite snack. I have tried many times but still the chillies are ended up being too hot to eat. I got an idea to soak it in the sour buttermilk for a whole day to take off the heat. Dipped in the besan flour (gram flour)and deep fried it. Serve it with chutney & it was really yummy. Also made a cake as my son wanted to make one for his dad :). Happy Fathers day to all.

  • Light green long chillies - 6 
  • Besan / Gram flour - 1 cup
  • Rice flour - 1/4 cup
  • Baking soda - a pinch
  • Salt to taste
  • Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  1. Slit the chillies and remove all  seeds and Soak the chillies in the sour buttermilk and 1tsp salt for whole day
  2. Drained all the buttermilk thoroughly 
  3. In a bowl mix besan, rice flour, soda, chilli powder, salt and add water(as per need) and make a medium thick batter
  4. Heat oil in a wok / kadai
