Instant Stuffed capsicum Pakoda

Finally got a chance to add in some of my tried recipes!! This one also goes to Simple Indian Food fried snacks event!

Since its Monsoon,why not try some different pakoda than the regular ones
Here's the Road map :)

- Sliced 2 -3 capsicum (cut a big slice)
- 2 small bowl Boiled groudnuts ( can swap it with potato)
- 2 Green chillies (mashed)
- Lemon juice
- Sugar
- 3 cups Gram flour (Besan )
- Red chilli powder
- Turmeric powder
- Baking soda
- Salt

1. Marinate sliced capsicum with salt for half an hour
2. In besan add 1/2 tbsp turmeric,1 tbsp red chilli powder , pinch of baking soda & salt and prepare a thick batter
3. Grind coarsely the boiled groundnuts,add mashed green chilles,2-3 drops of lemon juice ,pinch of sugar & salt. Mix it well (Can add ginger garlic paste & choped onion also- not yet tried)
4. Stuff the groundnuts paste in sliced capsicum,dip it in besan & deep fry & ready to be served!

Can have with Tomate sauce/ green chutney
Note - do not overboil the groundnuts
