Half cup of sesame seeds roasted
1 tsp each of coriander seeds  roasted
1 tsp of cumin  seeds roasted)
3 tablespoons of coconut powder
1 lemon sized tamarind juice -
besan powder


1.Wash and dry green chillies first. Take a green chilli, make a slit lengthwise in the middle, keeping the ends intact. With a knife or a spoon remove the seeds, clean the insides and make space for stuffing..if you want the bajjis real hot..you can retain some of the seeds.

2. Mix  gram flour (besan), rice flour, pinch of baking soda, salt to taste and half to one glass of water  thoroughly into thick batter (more like dosa/pancake batter consistency).

3. Keep tamarind immersed in little hot water.Dry roast sesame, carom,coriander & cumin seeds .Grind seeds in mixer to powder.Next add tamarind salt & coconut powder & grind again to a fine paste.stuffing is ready.

4.Do not remove the seeds if you want the bajjis to be hot. If you want you can remove half seeds and keep half seeds so that the bajjis will be hot but not burning. Stuff these chilies with the tamarind mixture and keep aside for 4 to 5 hours. By doing this your bajjis will not be hot at all. The chilies get a nice flavor of carom seeds and tamarind and will be tasty.

5.Now dip the prepared chilies in the batter and drop them in the oil and fry on medium heat. Fry till golden brown. When done remove them on to the paper napkin to remove excess oil. Serve them hot.

6.Slit bhajjis them length wise and keep aside. Chop onions finely, add some lemon juice and mix well with fingers. Stuff this onion mixture in the fried bajjis and serve. They taste excellent.
