    2. Stuff the potato stuffing into the chili.

    3. Dip the stuffed chili into besan batter, coat and deep fry to golden brown.

    1. The consistency of batter is very important. To check the right consistency, just dip your finger in batter. If its coated well,the consistency is correct. If the batter is too thin, finger won’t be coated completely. In that case, add some besan and rice flour to adjust the consistency. Check for salt. Add more salt if needed.

    2. Adding hing/ajwain to the bajji batter helps for easy digestion. So do not avoid it. If you don’t have hing/ajwain in hand,use jeera/cumin seeds.

    3. If your fingers start burning while deseeding, apply ghee all over your palms.
