Bell pepper bhaji

Bell peppers like chillies belong to the capsicum family.They come in different colors like red,yellow & orange.They have a sweet taste in their flesh unlike the green ones.I bought these bell peppers in different colors & size of a big chilli.These bell peppers were sweet in taste was not as spices as i thought it would be.So i decided to stuff them & make bajji for that extra spice.

This is how i made it.
Bell peppers 1 cup(slit in one side to stuff)
onions (finely chopped) 1 cup
coriander 2 tsp(finely chopped)
garlic rasam powder 1 tsp

For batter
Besan flour 1/2cup
Rice flour 1cup
chilli powder 1/2 tsp
salt to tasteIn a vessel mix all ingredients to prepare the batter with water.Consistency of the batter should not be very thick or thin it should be thick enough to coat the bell peppers.In another bowl mix onions,coriander & rasam powder & some salt.Now slit the bell peppers in one side & stuff them with onion mix.Now coat this stuffed bell pepper with the batter.Heat oil in kadai & deep fry these coated stuffed bell peppers.They taste yummy.They are not spicy so can be served to kids too.Can grate carrot & add with the onions.
