Capsicum Phodiyo (Capsicum Fritters)





This is one more of the fried goodies that come to the table once in a while at my place. This has been a hit at dinners at my parents' place and I also end up making these along with the Cauliflower Phodiyo.



It is tough to believe that something so simple can taste so good. And whenever Amma made them, I would be asked to taste. It is anyone's guess how many I "tasted" before certifying them as very good.






Ingredients:


2 Large Capsicum, cut into rings


1 tsp Chilli Powder


1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder


2 tbsp Curd


2 tbsp Gram Flour


Salt to Taste


Oil for deep frying

Mix the salt, chilli powder, and turmeric powder together and make a paste using the curd. Apply this to the capsicum rings like a marinade and leave aside for 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, you can place all the ingredients (including the capsicum rings) in a vessel and mix them.

Heat the oil in a kadhai.

The capsicum mixture will have released some water by this time. Add the gram flour to the mixture so that it absorbs the water and mix well.

Deep fry the rings in the oil and drain on a paper towel.


Enjoy them while hot. You'll know what living the good times is all about. This is off to dear Asha for the RCI Karnataka event.

Jayashree said...

Sounds good...pretty similar to capsicum bajji except for the curd and turmeric powder. Iam sure the curd adds another dimension of taste to the fritters.
