Ingredients to make Tandoori mirchi bajjis:

12-15 thick green chillies or jalapenos
2 cups gram flour (besan)
¼ tsp baking soda
Optional: chaat masala
¾ cup room temperature water (or as needed)
2 tbsp oil + oil for frying

Steps to make Tandoori mirchi bajjis:

Slice the green chillies halfway down one side. Scrape out the seeds and brush a thin layer of Tandoori Sauce inside each chilli. Pat them dry from the outside and set aside. Combine besan, baking soda, salt, chaat masala, and oil in a bowl. Slowly mix in water a little at a time until the batter is thick and coats each chilli evenly.
Heat up oil in a deep pan.
Coat the first few chillies in the batter and add them to sizzling hot oil. Deep fry them, one batch at a time, until they are golden brown (2-5 minutes). Cook all the chillies in this way, rotating them once in the middle, and set them on top of a paper towel to drain off the excess oil.
Arrange them on a platter and serve hot with a side of Mint Mayo and Peri Peri Ketchup.
