Lehriya Mirch/Mirchi Samosa!!

I am so proud to present this Mirchi Samosa, this was awesome awesome.Got the inspiration from Master Chef India show, in that show one contestant make it with Keema filling.I gave it my Version with Aloo Peas filling same filling which we used to make Samosa, that's why i gave it the name Mirchi samosa.It was a nice show, got to see lotts of twist in India Dishes which sounds really good,there are some more dishes in my mind from that show to try.Will try soon and will post it soon.For now lets have Mirchi Samosa.

Ingredients for two Mirchi

1/2 cup Maida
1 1/2 tbs Oil
1/2 tsp Ajwain
Pinch of salt

2 potatoes
handful of peas
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp crushed Coriander seeds
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp amchur powder
salt to taste
1 tsp oil

2 Pepper(Mirchi) {you can choose any i pick the one which are long n Lil bigger in size.If you want you can go ahead and pick the jalapeno peppers, to reduce the heat take out the seeds}

Heat oil in the pan add cumin,fennel and coriander seeds, after a second add all other ingredient of filling.Fry for couple of min until all mix together really well.Don't mash the potatoes completely.Garnish with coriander leaves

1. Knead a dough using maida, oil, salt, ajwain along with water into a stiff dough.
2. Slit the peppers from one side and stuff the filling into it.
3. Roll the dough and cut into long strips (3/4” wide) with a pizza cutter. Systematically wrap the chillies sealing as you go along with water(you can use the beaten egg as well but water works great too).

4. Heat oil in a kadhai and deep fry till crisp and golden brown, then drain on absorbent paper towels and serve with chutney.

Hi! Even i saw that master chef episode. It looks great. Nice recipe... One question.. do u use big mirch or small green mirch which we use on daily basis.

@Suvidha..I am glad u like it.
I use the really big one..but i think jalapenos peppers will be of perfect size for this.Not sure which one u use at home the one i use for curry n all they are really small for this.Hope this help.
