Its quick, simple and easy. I have made it plain and not stuffed the green chillies with potatoes or paneer stuffing. But you can stuff the green chillies with a stuffing of your choice. You can also have a look at Rajasthani Mirchi Vada Recipe.

In Mumbai, when you purchase Mix veg pakora, you will also get mirch pakoras in it. Most sweet shops sell mix pakoras in Mumbai. Apart from mix veg pakoras, you also get other pakora varieties in Mumbai like:

While writing this post, I remember having mirch pakoras in Goa. We liked it so much, that we used to visit this place every alternate day or so, just to have the Mirchi bhaji.

They served the bhaji with pav and with coconut chutney as an accompaniment. In Maharashtra and Goa, pakoras are known as Bhajji/bhajiya/bajji.

The green chillies that are used are a Larger variety of chillies and they are not spicy as their smaller counterparts. One can use small green chillies also, but they would turn out to be too hot and spicy.

These green chillies have a light green color and are known as bhaji/bhajji/bhajiya chillies. You can also use bhavnagri chilies.

To make it more yummy, You can stuff the chillies with grated paneer or any mashed vegetable filling.
