Ginger Garlic Paste 1/2 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1/4 tsp
Green Chiles 1
Salt to Taste
Oil 4 – 6 Tbsps
Method of preparation:
Wash, remove stems, discard seeds and chop capsicum into small chunks.
Remove stem, wash and grind green chile into paste.
In a mixing bowl, mix together besan, rice flour, ginger garlic paste, green chili paste, red chili powder and salt.
Add chopped capsicum pieces to the bowl along with a splash of water.
Mix together to let the flour mixture stick to the capsicum.
Heat oil in a wide pan on medium heat.
When oil gets hot, carefully add the capsicum pieces and distribute them to the whole pan.
If you have small pan, then add the capsicum in batches but don’t overcrowd the pan.
Fry for few minutes and turn the capsicum pieces.
Fry till the capsicum pieces turn brown in color.
Remove the capsicum fry onto absorbent paper.
Repeat the same with any remaining capsicum.
Serve crispy capsicum fry with steamed rice.
Notes: Make sure to fry till crisp and dark golden brown in color.
Suggestions: Make sure to add just enough water to make the flour stick to the capsicum pieces. Add more flour to counter the extra water. Make sure to adjust the spice with green chiles.
