Cut the fat from the traditional mirchi bhajiya (milagai bajji) and make a healthier, (still) delicious version of the ever popular Indian delicacy!

Low Fat Mirchi Bhajiya Recipe | Indian Jalapeño Fritters written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com

My dear Desi friends,

You are going to adore this recipe. I only stress on the desi friends bit because I’m not sure those of you with a lower threshold for spice will want to make + eat this goodie. Mirchi Bhajiya is an Indian favorite – something that is considered to be a perfect snack with tea on a cold, rainy day. Fiery hot, stuffed with a potato filling and deep fried to crispy perfection is how a traditional Mirchi Bhajiya is supposed to be.

You may want to check out my original post where I did the whole deep frying bit. That was wayyyyyy back in 2012. I was young. And thin. And had a metabolism of a horse. 😛 But now that I’m being a bit more conscious about the kind of foods I eat, I ensure to keep it as healthy as possible. If there is a healthier alternative, I definitely prefer that over deep frying. Which is why when my friends at Tupperware sent me their new Steam it, I couldn’t wait to try something innovative as opposed to just steaming veggies. Just you wait. You’re going to want to scroll down to see how brilliant this steamer is and how you can use it in so may ways!
