Stuffed Menasinakai bajji or Stuffed Mirchi bajji or Stuffed Chilli bajji recipe explained with step by step pictures. This Stuffed bajji recipe resembles Davanagere style stuffed Mirchi bajji recipe. Davanagere is a city, positioned at the geographical centre in the Indian state of Karnataka. And this city is very popular for the Menasinakai bajji or Mirchi bajji.
Generally in Karnataka, many cities are popular for their signature dishes. Like maddur is popular for maddur vada, Bangalore for idli-sambar, Mangalore for Mangalore buns, Davanagere is popular for Davanagere benne dosa, churumuri and Menasinakai bajji or mirchi bajji. But in Davangere Menasinakai bajji or Mirchi bajjis are prepared using a different type of chilli. Those chillis are more green in colour, little thin and little spicy as compared to the chillis, which I used here. Just have a look on the image below. I was not having these chilies when I posted this recipe.
In Kannada language chilli bajjis are called by name menasinakai bajji or menasinakai bonda. These stuffed Menasinakai bajji or Mirchi bajji or Chilli bajjis are very tasty. They are stuffed before frying as well as after frying. Before frying chillis are stuffed with cumin and salt. And after frying bajjis are stuffed with finely chopped onion and coriander leaves.
You can also use various combinations of stuffing like grated carrot or sprouts or whatever you wish. I have already posted crispy chilli bajjis, which will be having a thin coat from outside. But these Davanagere Chilli bajji or menasinakai bajjis will be having very thick coat. They are crispy from outside and soft from inside.
