Ingredients :
Jalapenos 6-8 , 3/4th cup chickpea powder (Besan) , 1/4th cup Peanut Powder ,
Chilly powder , Salt to taste , 2 pinch turmeric , 1 pinch asafoetida , 3 tbspn oil
3 tbspn tamarind pulp, 1/4 tspn fennel seeds , 1/2 tspn sugar .
Oil to shallow fry.
Procedure :
Cut the jalapenos lengthwise on one side and deseed the jalapenos to make room for stuffing. This will also help to reduce the heat from them.
Mix besan , salt , chilly powder , peanut powder , fennel seeds (optional) , sugar , turmeric , asafoetida , tamarind pulp. Drizzle regular cooking oil over the mixture and mix it well so that the oil holds the mixture. Use of water makes the filling sticky . Oil helps to bind the mixture together better.
Stuff the jalapenos with the mixture and make sure you have a tight filling. Use a double boiler or preassure cook the jalapenos for about 10 minutes . These can be stored in the fridge for a couple of weeks .
Shallow fry these before you serve and due to its long shelf life they can be served as a side as and when needed.
NOTE : This Maharashtrian side is made with a particular type of green chillies . Jalapenos are a good substitute for this recipe. You may use any type of green chillies that are not too spice, reasonable in size per availability.
