Mirchi Pakoda

For this week I am hopping with Kalyani of "Sizzling Tastebuds" for Blog Hop Wednesday- Week 9. She's having a wonderful blog with events, various cuisine and tasty dishes. It was really difficult to select a one.
I picked "Mirchi Bajji" from her blog as these mirchis are very much in season. And these chillies are apt for this chilling season. :)
