Lahriya Mirch

                           
        Today I would like to share a great recipe inspired by Masterchef India. It's made with  some my own twist and hope you guys will enjoy the recipe.

        I'm going to use Anaheim Peppers in this recipe. It is very mild in flavor. Anaheim Peppers are also known as Hatch Chile. Most commonly use in Mexican cuisines. Anaheim Green Peppers are very rich in Vitamin C.

       I tried to add some Potatoes, Carrots and Green Peas in this recipe and they came out so delicious. So I'll make this recipe short with some awesome taste.
       Let's Start.......
INGRIDENTS::
* 1 CUP ALL PURPOSE(maida)
* 1TSP AJWAIN
* 1/2 TBLS OIL

* 1 CUP CHOPPED ONIOS
* 2 ANEHAIME PEPPERS
* 1/3 CUP BOILED AND CRUSHED GREEN PEAS
* 1/3 CUP GRATED CARROT
* 2 TBLS CASHEW POWDER
* 1 TSP GARAM MASALA
* 1 TBLS LEMON JUICE
* 2 MEDIUM SIZE BOILED AND GRATED POTATOES
* 1 TBLS GREEN CHILI AND GINGER PASTE
* SALT TO TASTE
* 1/2 TSP BLACK PEPPER POWDER
* 1 TBLS GHEE
* OIL FOR FRYING
* 1 EGG WHITE (BEATEN)
METHOD::
                   Take all purpose in a mixing bowl add ajwain, salt and oil  mix all. knead a stiff dough with adding water. Keep aside.
                   Heat the pan adding ghee init. Add onions and saute till light brown. Add green chili and ginger paste. Cook for a minute and add grated carrot and crushed green peas. Stirring all the time for next couple of minutes.
                 Add cashew powder, garam masala, black pepper powder and salt. Add boiled grated potatoes and mix well. Turn off the stove and let it cool little bit. Add lemon juice in it.  Break up lumps if any and mix it with hands again. 
                Stuff the cooled potatoes mixture into deseeded Anaheim pepper.
                 Roll the dough in round shape like Roti. Cut in to long strips about 3/4' in. with help of pizza cuter or knife. Give a Anaheim pepper egg wash. If you are vegetarian and don't use eggs then apply milk instead of egg white. Systematically wrap the chili all around and fully cover it.
               Heat the oil in to frying pan. Deep fry  the Anaheim pepper till crisp and light gold brown.
                                     
     Serve it with cilantro chutney or ketchup., choice would be yours..!!!!
******* Best fry just right before serving.

                    As I CAN AND I WILL I'm sure YOU CAN AND YOU WILL....
