Besan Mirch.

Besan Mirch is a Rajasthani delicacy made by roasting green chilies in a spiced Besan mixture. The green chilies lose some of their bite when roasted and the tangy and spicy flavors get infused with them..

For those who love spices, Besan Ki Mirchi is not just appetizing but also enhances the flavour of food. Roasted besan along with spices give this dish a very unique texture & flavour hence this dish goes well with both Roti and Dal rice.


12 Medium Sized Bhavnagari Chillies

200 gms Besan/ gram flour

1 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp Fennel seeds

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1/2 tsp Amchur


2 tbsps oil.


Wash and dice the green chilies into pieces as per preference. I prefer to keep them slightly large. Roast Besan in a pan till it begins to give out its aroma and turns a golden brown. Keep aside. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the mustard, cumin and fennel seeds and after they splutter add the turmeric and Amchur powders. Immediately add the chillies and salt and roast till they wilt. Tip in the Besan and mix thoroughly. Allow the Besan ki Mirch to absorb all the flavours for a few minutes. Switch off and serve.
