Scrumptious Fodni Mirchi

Scrumptious Fodni Mirchi

Indians love their chillies, whether with some pakodas during chai or eaten with dinner for a bite. This traditional Maharashtrian fodni chilli recipe is perfect for any lover of spice. Tempering the chillies strengthens the flavour and the mustard complements that direct heat with a deep and earthy flavour. 

Yields: 8-10 chillies  |  Prep time: 5 minutes  |  Cooking Time: 10 minutes approx.

 

Utensils required:

  • Frying pan
  • Mortar & pestle (for mustard)
  • Spatula

 

Ingredients:

  • Green chillies - 8 to 10
  • Mustard seeds - ½ tsp
  • Ground mustard seeds - ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder - ½ tsp
  • Asafoetida - ¼ tsp
  • Oil - 2 to 3 tbsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp of to taste
  • Lime Juice - half a lime

 

Method:

  • First make a slit in your green chillies through the middle. But do not cut through the other side. Ensure the chilli is still intact.
  • Heat oil on medium flame in a frying pan. When it heats up add in the whole mustard seeds.
  • As they start to crackle and pop add the asafoetida, turmeric powder, ground mustard seeds and salt.
  • Stir the masalas for a brief minute and then add in your chillies. Stir them to  coat them completely in the oil mixture.
  • Cover them and let them cook until they become soft. This could take anywhere from 4 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the chillies. Make sure you check on them every minute or so.
  • When they are soft and supple finish off the fried chillies with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
