These are otherwise known as yellow wax peppers, banana chilis or banana peppers. They are rather mild, less spicy and more on the sweeter side. The waxy texture and the sweetness are perfect for snacks, especially when the day seems sort of dull and down or to enjoy with your friends…
Chili fritters or bajjis or fried banana peppers, vendors rock this. It’s very popular in India! When you flour coat and deep fry any peppers like these, then it becomes chili bajjis, an Indian name for fritters. But I would comfortably call it fried banana peppers, sort of simple and easy to understand.
Fortunately, I have eaten quite a lot when I was darn carefree and diet free 🙂 . So, as I sighted these at the store, the whole vendor scenario back in Bangalore crossed my mind, so I bought them to prepare fritters at home. Listing it here for the love of fellow foodies 🙂
For the batter: A cup of all purpose flour, salt and ground pepper. Add water little by little till it reaches the consistency of pancake batter.
First step – Prepare the peppers. You could leave the seeds as is or remove them – by slitting vertically – if you wish to avoid any hint of spiciness. As you remove the seeds, make sure to leave the outer case intact.
Second step – Dip in the batter and coat in bread crumbs
Third step – Deep fry
