Sev puri and Mirchi Bajji for Game Night Party

Once upon a time, I use to watch religiously cricket and Lawn Tennis. After coming to US I don't get to watch them anymore and I am out of touch with them as well. I have no clue who is playing for the indian cricket team anymore. Sometimes I do still watch Tennis here. My husband is a die hard fan of Spurs (as we stay in San Antonio) and watches every Basketball game without fail. So, I too got used to watching them along with them. One good thing with this game is that it will be done in couple of hours. So I usually make some snacks for him that goes well with the beer. Few of them to name are Onion Pakodi, masala vada or mirchi bajji. So here I present my favorite Sev puri and his favorite mirchi bajji for the Game Night Party event being hosted by Mansi Desai of Fun and Food.

Sev Puri:

1 Boiled potato (peeled and chopped)
Small red onion
Small tomato
Few chickpeas (canned)
Chaat masala
Tamarind chutney
Coriander chutney
Few Pani puris
Chopped cilantro

A closer look at the sev puri

Make a hole to the pani puri and stuff with couple of chickpeas, potato, onion and tomato. Sprinkle some chaat masala as per your taste on each puri. Top them with tamarind and coriander chutneys. If you like you may put some yogurt/dahi too. I did use a little. Top them with sev and chopped coriander leaves/cilantro. Sprinkle some chaat masala again on top of each sev puri and serve them. Easy to make and tastes delicious.

Recipe for Mirchi bajji can be found here. I followed almost the same method except for few changes.

1. I made them with indian large green chillies.

2. I added 1/4 cup of rice flour to the batter recipe.

3. I stuffed some mirchis with potato stuffing. Take a boiled potato, add to that little chaat masala and salt and stuff that into the chillies.

4. I cut couple of mirchi bajjis into three pieces and fried them in the hot oil to make cut mirchi.

Rest of the procedure is same as mentioned in that recipe. Cut open the mirchi bajjis, stuff with some chopped onion, sprinkle chaat masala and squeeze little lime juice. Take a bite and I assure, you will love it. My husband loves them to have as a side dish while having his beer.

Enjoy guys.
