Shimal mirch pakoda recipe - Capsicum pakoda which is also known as dhobli mirchi bhaji in marathi, is really a tempting dish which can be made as  a good tea-time snack. Capsicum or bell pepper is an easily available vegetable in Indian vegetable market. It is widely used vegetable in Maharashtra and the bhaji is prepared with different versions in each house hold. Whenever I bring capsicums I reserve few to make pakoda. Capsicum and bessan are basic ingredients, but to make it more tastier the capsicum should be marinated with chilli powder, amchur powder and salt. This bhaji is soft from inside and crispy from outside. It tastes awesome and should be eaten and served hot with tomato ketchup.
