Stuffed Chilli/ Stuffed Mirchi Wada

Stuffed Chilli
I bought the biggest and the hottest jalapenos/Chillies available in the local market.I tried to make stuffed chilli for the evening snack. A popular dish in India, freshly made, by street hawkers. They are called Mirchi Bada. Everyone thought that these would be spicy, But they are not at all spicy and even a small kid can eat them . It is the best snack for teatime or Here you can make this fine-tasting accompaniment to a main meal - or indeed can be eaten alone as a sort of snack.It is favorite of many people In Mumbai This is mine and my husband's all-time favorite snack. Everyone in our family just loves it.
