Monsoon is back, rain is in the air and weather is just awesome. And in this lovely weather all that comes to your mind is spicy pakoras. But if you ask me, there is another jazzy alternative to it which is equally enticing and reinvigorates your taste buds. I am referring to savoury stuffed vegetables which are delightful in taste and extremely easy to cook. 

Stuffed vegetables are loved by one and all. There are various forms such as stuffed capsicum, stuffed bitter gourd, stuffed lady finger etc. They not only taste good but look equally appealing. 

Stuffed chilli | Besan ki bharwa mirch is one such dish that I love a lot and ensure to cook at least once a week. This side dish augments any typical North Indian food and adds life to even a simple daal-chawal. The spiciness of chillies, the flavour of besan and spices as well as sourness of dry mango powder adds oodles of zing to this awesome dish. This being a vegetable doesn’t need too much oil to cook and hence is a healthy alternative to other spicy dishes such as chaat and pakora.

And no better time to try this piquant dish than this awesome rainy season. So don’t wait any longer and start preparing this dish with me.
