Mirch fry is a spicy tangy recipe where green chilli is fried lightly in spices. It can add extra spice and enhances the flavor of daily lunch or dinner. This recipe is so simple that it can be made in just 10 minutes. These fried chillies are made with very basic ingredients that are readily available at home. I prefer making this as a side dish to dal and rice when I don’t want to make any dry sabji. This can also be served with roti, paratha or even pakoras.
Apart from being tasty this mirchi fry is also very healthy. Green chilli helps in balancing blood sugar and improving skin condition. You can also make it once and store it for a week in fridge. I like to choose less spicy chillies for this recipe but you can also choose the hot variety of chillies. If you make this once you will never forget it’s amazing chatpata taste.
