Chilli Bajji Recipe / Milagai Bajji Recipe / Mirchi Bajji Recipe

This is my favourite bajji after onion bajji. There is another version which is a stuffed bajji. Will share that soon as well. Hot bajji is perfect with a cup of chai. There is few things you have to keep in mind when making the bajji or the bajji will get too spicy.So what i do is deseed my peppers and blanch it in salted boiling water. This way the spicyness is gone and the bajji taste yum.
