Mensinkaayi bajji

6 long green chilli
6 Tbsp Besan (chickpea flour)
2 Tbsp Rice flour
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric (Why not - when its healthy!!! :))
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

1) Add besan, rice flour, cumin seeds, turmeric, red chilli powder in a mixing bowl. Add water to get the desired consistency (like thick yoghurt) and mix well
2) Slit the green chilli vertically on one side and deseed it. Soak in water. Add salt to it. (Not sure why this is required but mum says it reduces how hot the chilli is).
3) Heat the oil for frying (medium heat)
4) Dip the green chilli in the mix. Ensure all sides are covered. Fry it. Remove when it turns golden brown. Do the same for the rest.

1/4 tsp of baking soda can be added for a more fluffier covering.
