One of the easiest and tastiest of fritters that are a hit during get togethers and buffets, are the Bell pepper Fritters. These fritters are generally made from the green ones which are found in abundance as compared to the yellow, red and orange ones. They may be served with a dip but are best eaten without any accompaniment.
- 3 Bell peppers
- 200 gms Besan/Chickpea flour
- 100 gms rice flour
- 2 tsps chilly powder
- 1/4 tsp ajwain/Carom seeds
- Coriander leaves
- A large pinch of Hing/asafoetida
- Oil for frying
Wash and cut the Bell pepper vertically into half. Core it. Remove the seeds. Cut it lengthwise into 1 inch long slices. Chop the coriander leaves fine. Mix the rice flour, Besan, chilly powder, salt, ajwain, coriander leaves and hing. Add a little water at a time and make it into a thick but runny batter. Tip a few pieces into the batter. Heat the oil. Check that the pieces have been coated well by the batter. Drop them into the hot oil. Fry to a crispy golden brown. Serve with dip or chutney of your choice.
